Trendsetting farm biogas

weltec biopower

The slurry from a newly erected pigsty on a farm in Varazdin, Cro­atia, with 130 sows and 2,800 porkers, is forming the basis for biogas energy production.

The 250kW plant from Ger­man manufacturer Weltec Bio­power perfectly suits the farm’s cycle of food production, liquid manure utilisation and energy production in the form of power, heat and fertilliser.

In addition to a subsidy for the construction, the farmer was able to base the investment decision on a fixed feed-in tariff of e0.19 (16p) per kilowatt-hour of power fed in during the next 14 years. This income forms a solid basis for diversifying his business.

Weltec’s Croatian sales partner considers the development of such a family operation as a trend-set­ting concept in the country, where a focus on biogas for heat and power production is on the rise.
