WELTEC BIOPOWER To Build Plant In France

WELTEC BIOPOWER’s early 2012 with the construction of a 526-kilowatts biogas plant in French Saint Nicolas Tertre, in the Brittany region 100 kilometres northwest of Nantes started. The fermentation tanks are fed with pig manure, waste from the food industry, renewable raw materials and intermediate crops for energy use. Provides the location for the plant, the farmer and operator delivers the agricultural substrates. The waste heat produced by the bio-gas plant will be used the fermentation rest drying on the one hand and on the other hand used for supplying heat in his 60 metres from Piggeries. Heat usage by 70 percent (without boarding fermenter, heat), the CHP bonus is four cents per kilowatt hour in France, so is the feed-in tariff for a 500-kilowatt system on a total of 17 cents.

In France, the single power law guarantees that the State 15 years decreases electricity from biogas plants at a guaranteed price. In the power range from 150 to 250 and 600 kilowatts to 1 megawatt are in France currently several biogas plants involving WELTEC BIOPOWER in the construction and planning. By privileged construction law, the Declaration”, many plants are constructed in the country, consume less than 30 tonnes of agricultural substrates per day. So a permit of the biogas plant achieved in four to six months. Obtaining the approval of systems according to the German immission protection procedure (authorisation”) may take up to 18 months. Considering the available resources to reason, France during the construction of biogas plants is restrained. The European bio-gas Association EBA has summarized the expansion targets of some EU countries for the biogas production of electricity by 2020: Italy wants to 1,200 megawatts of electrical power from biogas have installed, Britain 1,100 and Poland 980. The Netherlands aim 639, France at 625, and the Czech Republic 417 megawatts. Unchallenged, Germany (3,796 megawatts) is located at the top of this scenario. Measured at the organic level potential for power generation in the Country are available, use the Netherlands only about 5 percent 68 percent, Germany 25, Poland 19 and France energetically.
