The biogasnetwerk project

The oude Lenferink firm in Fleringen owns a pig farm and is a manure transporter and processer, on the farm a digester has been build that currently produces 2 million m3 of biogas on a yearly basis. From the farm a 7.5km long pipeline has been developed leading to a central upgrading installation in Almelo. Here the biogas is upgraded to biomethane and injected into the natural gas grid. The pipeline between Fleringen and Almeo is the start of a biogasnetwork in the region. In 2020, a inventory was kicked off with the aim to extend the network, so that more producers can use the central upgrading facility, lowering the threshold for farmers to start producing biogas.
