In September, the first installation in The Netherlands which retrieves biogas from the sewage treatment process for domestic and transport use officially entered service in the city of Beverwijk.

The system from BioGast Sustainable Energy upgrades biogas resulting from the fermentation of sewage sludge to “green” natural gas which is then fed into the gas grid of ENECO Energie. The BioGast system is targeting yearly production of 650,000 m3 of gas—sufficient for more than 400 households.
A filling installation has been added to the BioGast which allows cars to fill up their tanks with Biogas. The Hollands Noorderkwartier Water Board will purchase natural gas fuelled cars which will run on the CO2 neutral biogas.
