First biogas upgrading plant Estonia by DMT


On the 29th of October 2016, the contract to deliver the first CarborexMS 350 in Viljandimaa, Estonia, was signed. This project, which will be the first biogas upgrading plant in Estonia, will be built on the property of a big farm in Viljandimaa in the south of Estonia. The feedstock for the digester consists of cow manure. Like the CarborexMS in Poundbury that marked the kick-off of building a series of DMT CarborexMS plants in the UK, this project is a pilot plant for Estonia.

Estonia is the frontrunner in Eastern European countries with high ambitions in renewable energy goals. Next to numerous investments in wind- and solar power to achieve the 2020 climate goals, the Estonian Government now starts to invest in biogas upgrading to also reach their ambitious goals in renewable fuel for transport. A program to change the public transport of Estonia to run on power and CNG has now started with an investment for the first project in Viljandimaa. The CarborexMS will be delivered in August 2017, and will produce 150 kg/CNG per hour.

The Dutch-based DMT-ET is currently building biogas upgrading plants in Denmark, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, USA, and this first biomethane production plant in Estonia. In U.K. alone DMT-ET delivered thirteen biogas upgrading plants, with extra technology for the production of BioLNG and BioCNG and fuelings stations. DMT-ET will continue to do so in her challenge to create a clear and prosperous future.
