Biogas direcly from plants

More hectare yield in energy allows the biogas production in Strem. Using again fallow sites for the agriculture, an income for farmers from the energy production.

Driving silo as a biomass depot Driving silo as a biomass depot
10,000 metric tons of biomass of the maize cultivation are delivered here per year in the driving silos. Each of 4 driving silos is 15 ms wide and 70 ms long.

Second fermenter 1500 m³ Second fermenter 1500 m³
The tent roof serves as a gas storage. The storage can store the produced gas for 11.5 hours. At the moment electricity and heat is produced with the gas in a 500 kW gas engine.

Fertilizer from the fermentation gas equipment Fertilizer from the fermentation gas equipment
The lagoon catches 2,000 cubic meters fertilizers. After 6 months of fermentation gas production the lagoon is full. Then there come the farmers and fetch the valuable fertilizer.

Surface yield with the power production
This fermentation gas plant is a big step forward, but also the proof of the fact that we must equip all our houses with complete photovoltaic roofs.

Scheme of the biogas production in Strem
What hangs here as an facility scheme of the Thöni biogas production on a wall, we introduce on the next sides photo for photo in the reality. Unobtrusively in the landscape
From the left to the right: District heating Strem with 2 * 500 kWh of gas engines. The gas tent of the second fermenter, the driving silo. The rest  can not be seen from here. Solid entry
From the driving silos are up to 50 cubic meters of biomass all at once brought in the solid entry. This thing is comparable, so to speak, to the mouth of the cow. Main fermenter 1500 m³
For the start, 1300 ms ³ sanies had been introduced to the bacterial cultivation . Another research equipment got by 2 years without slury supplies, here the researchers hope more. Fertilizer collection
Here the farmers with the liquid manure barrels behind the tractor take over the liquid manure. The material what comes from the fermentation gas system is similar to cow dung.

Energy supply with renewable energy Energy supply with renewable energy
Huge changeovers in our energy supply are imminent. We report over the condition of the technologies and their future-potential of different sources of energy.

Renewable energy from biomass Renewable energy from biomass
Biomass can in an dense inhabited industry country be only a complement to electric power from sun and wind. At all enthusiasm for biomass, do not neglect the photovoltaic.
