E.ON Buys 11.8-MW Biogas Plant from Schmack

Schmack Biogas AG has sold an 11.8-megawatt (MW) biogas plant located in Aiterhofen, Germany to E.ON Bioerdgas GmbH. Once completed, the plant will produce some 16.5 million cubic metres of biogas annually.

This will be fed into the natural gas grid of Energienetze Bayern GmbH, with marketing to be handled by E.ON Bioerdgas. More than 150 regional farmers will supply the required raw material mix of maize, whole plant and grass silage and catch crops. Construction of the €21 million [US $26.5 million] plant has already started.

"Acknowledging Schmack Biogas AG’s success in developing and implementing a professional industrial-scale plant concept capable of processing a wide variety of different renewable raw materials, we have designated them as one of our partners for long-term cooperation," Friedrich Wolf, managing director of E.ON Bioerdgas GmbH.
