Weltec Biopower's first facility in Poland

Weltec Biopower says it is beginning in September with the construction of a 2.4 MW biogas plant in Darżyno, Poland. The operator NEWD will ferment not only maize and slurry from the neighbouring agricultural industry, but also potato waste from a chips manufacturer. Starting in summer 2013, the substrates will be deposited in four approximately 4,400 m³ large stainless steel fermenters, with the help of four storage tanks and a 50-m³ dispenser.

For Weltec Biopower, it is the first biogas project in Poland. The company from Lower Saxony has been represented on site by the subsidiary, Weltec Polska, since last year.
