VERBIO gets OK for second biorefinery
Source : greencarcongress.com
German Environment Minister Dr Norbert Röttgen gave the official green light for a new VERBIO biorefinery in Schwedt/Oder, which produces bioethanol, biogas and bio-fertilizer from biomass residues. The second VERBIO biogas plant of this kind, it has a power output of 30 MW in the initial stage, and is to be expanded to 75 MW. VERBIO cascades the utilization of the biomass with its concept of co-siting a bioethanol plant, biogas plant and bio-fertilizer plant. The biofuels produced in this way achieve a greenhouse gas reduction of up to 90% compared with gasoline, according to the company. Multiple utilization of the raw materials used means that they can be almost entirely converted into energy, VERBIO says. The bio-fertilizer, a by-product of the biorefinery, is returned to the agricultural cycle. Verbiogas is produced exclusively from biomass residues materials such as slope, a by-product of bioethanol production, and straw. The biogas is processed to the same quality standard as natural gas, and then fed into the existing natural gas network and made available as a fuel at natural gas filling stations.
