Biogas Leeuwarden

The Dairy Campus of Wageningen University and Research Center, the world’s top-ranked agricultural research university, is in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands. Its waste-to-energy plant converted manure into biogas using traditional anaerobic digesters. The system failed to yield adequate biogas and became obsolete.

Clark Engineering and Evergreen Energy developed a patented bio-catalytic conversion system and patent-pending waste-to-energy conversion technology to retrofit this plant and construct new plants. These technologies produce approximately 50% more usable biogas than any other technologies in the world.

This waste-to-energy plant allows high-efficiency conversion of manure, grass clippings, and other organics into electricity for 1,700 residences and heat for 700 more. It produces 60% more biogas at lower cost compared to the original plant. In five hours, Biogas Leeuwarden generates enough energy for an entire household for one year!
