Two New Biogas Plant Orders for HoSt

HoSt, based in the Netherlands, has received two new biogas plant orders that are located almost on the same latitude, yet 2,300 kilometres away from each other. A 350 Nm3/hr biogas plant in Fontenoy, Belgium and a 3 MWe biogas plant in Tsjernihiv, Ukraine. Both projects are due to be commissioned in Q4 of 2021.

The biogas plant in Fontenoy, a town just above the southern Belgium border, will be built at a sugar factory on behalf of sugar organization Finasucre. Beet residues, such as beet tops, are anaerobically digested to produce 350 Nm3 biogas per hour during the sugar beet season.

After a cleaning step, the biogas is directly applied in Finasucre’s sugar production process which contributes to a sustainable sugar manufacturing and a greater independency of fossil natural gas.

Ben Olde Keizer, Account Manager at HoSt, says, “We have done many biogas projects over the years, but this one is one of a kind, because the biogas installation is only used during the sugar beet season, at harvest time.”

For the second project, in cooperation with partner Pro-Energy, HoSt will construct a 3 MWe biogas plant in Tsjernihiv in northern Ukraine. HoSt is responsible for the engineering, biogas technology and main equipment.

“This will be our first biogas project in Ukraine. We are very excited to bring our advanced biogas technology to this country; the agricultural biogas production potential and the overall biogas potential in Ukraine is very high,” says Robin Klein Falckenborg, Sales Engineer at HoSt. The biogas installation will produce renewable heat and electricity from crops harvested on currently fallow land.
