The assignment includes the technical and economic feasibility of a resource center for Santiago Island (Cape Verde) valorising the solid municipal waste by recycling, and by generating renewable energy (electricity, biomethane,..) and high-quality fertilizer from the organic fraction.
In 2012 and 2013 the GIZ started an educational program for a selection of representatives of administrations, ministries, municipalities from Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia in the different areas of biogas production (landfill, waste water treatment and classical biogas).
The biogas plant in Taroudant is planned to be installed near to a waste water treatment plant owned and operated by the client. The client is producing milk products, fruits and is also starting to construct a slaughter house.
The biogas plant at Geer is installed near to the company “Hesbaye Frost” (Ardo group). The plant uses the by-products from the production of frozen vegetables (solid organic vegetable waste) and also different agricultural biomasses (solid manure, liquid manure, energy crops) of 39 farmers from the region.
The assignment included the assessment of the technical and economic feasibility of a biogas plant. The plant should be set up on an existing landfill site and integrated into the existing infrastructures.
The area of “Stadtwerke Marsberg” was declared as a protection zone for the drinking water production in 2006. A new regulation was instaured saying that the use of non treated manure (liquid and solid) in the drinking water protection zone was forbidden without any treatment in order to reduce the sanitary risks of the manure in the drinking water.
The assignment includes the project development and the basic and detailed engineering of the whole project. The separately collected organic household waste from the city of Luxembourg and the surrounding municipalities together with leftovers from supermarkets and kitchen waste are turned into green energy in the biogas plant.
In Junglinster an energy production facility based at a maximum on renewable energies (biogas + wood combustion) has started to be realized (December 2012) together with a district heating system of a total length of 6 km connecting different heat consumers located in an commercial activity zone, and in future also in a new village center.
Already in 1998 the idea to build a collective biogas plant came up in the region of Redange. In 2000, 29 farmers have joined in a cooperative and assigned L.E.E. s.à r.l. for the whole project development including the engineering services.
