The BioGTS®Biogas plant delivery to the experimental farm of MTT Agrifood Research Center in Sotkamo, Finland, is progressing in schedule and the plant is now under construction. The biogas reactor has already been delivered to the customer in July 2014, and construction works for the digestate storage facilities are on-going at the site. Technical facilities including automation and control rooms and boiler room are under construction in our technical production facilities in Laukaa, and will be delivered for the customer in Sotkamo by the end of August. Please see some photos of the plant construction below.
The BioGTS®Biogas plant is based on so called dry anaerobic digestion process, which allows for much higher energy output per reactor volume than traditional biogas processes based on slurry systems. The BioGTS®Biogas plant plant design is based on very cost-efficient modular reactor structures, which enable easy scalability and quick “plug-in” installation on site.
MTT Agrifood Research Center in Sotkamo is an experimental farm of the MTT Agrifood Research Finland, which is the leading research institute in Finland working with the topics related to agricultural research and developing the sustainability and competitiveness of the food system.
