Study Tour Friday 22nd March afternoon
Dry discontinuous anaerobic digestion unit (55kW) in Touvois - Loire Atlantique
Visit of the first dry discontinuous anaerobic digestion unit in concrete digester garages, realised by Méthajade. This facility operating since early 2013 will eventually process 2700 tons of matter per year (manure, intermediary crops, cereal waste). The biogas produced supplies a 55 kWe and 75 kWth cogeneration engine. Electricity is fed into the national grid. Heat supplies a wood drier. Digestate is totally used as fertiliser on the farm.
This visit was proposed free of charge.
