Leftovers to generate gas
Weltec Biopower is set to build a biogas plant in South Korea. The plant will come up some 60 km north of Seoul, and will transform biogas into heat in an integrated gas boiler. As early as spring 2021, the 7MW plant is to go live and digest up to 93,000 tonnes of food waste a year, some of which will also come from local households. Weltec has already planned and built two biogas plants in South Korea. Every day, the two bioreactors are filled with more than 250 tonnes of food leftovers. For the new plant, the raw materials will arrive in processed form and will be fed into the plant as a ready-to-use liquid mix.
