The new plant is to supply Arla Food’s milk powder production with green energy in the form of biogas, which is converted to electricity and heat. The Nature Energy Videbaek biogas plant is expected to be up and running in the autumn of 2018.

The main shareholder is the energy company Nature Energy while Arla Foods, Xergi and local farmers’ association Videbaek Biogas have smaller holdings in the plant.

With five biogas digesters each with a capacity of 9,500 cubic metres the biogas plant can handle around 600,000 tonnes of biomass a year and produce 16.5 million cubic metres of bio-methane.
