With 130 employees in nine Polish regions, PGB is mainly involved in generating renewable heat and power from biogas sourced from organic waste. It owns and operates 17 facilities in production and one under construction, for a total power generation capacity of 166 GWh per year. PGB's portfolio also includes a development pipeline of 23 projects.
The acquisition of PGB raises TotalEnergies’ biogas production capacity to 1.1 TWh and gives the Company a leading position in the promising Polish market, which represents Europe’s fourth-largest potential for biogas and biomethane production, estimated at close 100 terawatt-hours (TWh).
“These agreements illustrate TotalEnergies' commitment to developing its renewable activities in Poland, and in Europe as a whole, to support the European Green Deal,” said Stéphane Michel, President Gas, Renewables & Power at TotalEnergies.
According to the PGB website, the company is a leader in the production of renewable energy from biogas in Poland and a supplier to international markets of innovative technologies, using intelligent IT systems, supporting the production of green energy.
"The team of engineers of the Polish Biogas Group has developed a wide range of intelligent management systems for biogas plants that guarantee maximum efficiency at low production costs.
Biogas plants are 100% safe for the environment and local inhabitants. The design, construction and subsequent operation of biogas plants are strictly regulated by law. Before the start up of a biogas plant, it is thoroughly checked by external inspection bodies. The operational capability and safety of the installation is confirmed by a permit for use, issued by the competent authorities."
In the power plants of Polska Grupa Biogazowa, the biogas production process is supervised by a team of experienced and qualified experts, including engineers, biotechnologists, automation specialists, service technicians and operators.
