Safe the date! Project study tour  
to Grass digesting AD plants in the Netherlands and Flanders, Belgium

Tuesday & Wednesday, 1 & 2 December 2015

Pro Natura, Inagro, UGent, DLV and PXL organize a regional study tour to familiarize participants with several innovative installations in Flanders and the Netherlands, on the 1st and 2nd December 2015.

During this study tour, both the wet and dry digestion process of grass residues will be illustrated. The facility of Erk Energy BV in Zeewolde (NL) is a typical agricultural wet digester with an output of 800 kWe, which also takes in grass residues. Jansen Wijhe Energy BV in the municipality of Wijhe (NL) aims at the valorization of several biomass streams, including manure, corn, nature grass and other rest streams, producing 1,7 MWe of electricity. The facility of IGEAN in Brecht (BE) is a dry VGF digester, which also processes the roadside verge grass from several neighboring municipalities. All in all, 65 000 tons of VGF and grass are processed every year.

For registration please contact: Robert Gruwez, ><
