Title: Steindorfer Bio + natural gas
The energy yield of biogas from meadow grass is a sleek 4-year meadow at about 30,000 kWh / ha. This corresponds to an energy level of about 3,000 liters of heating oil per hectare. In addition to heat and power biogas in this project for high-quality biomethane fuel is refined. With a standard gas vehicle can be driven per hectare and year a distance of 45,000 km - once around the globe. In addition, the renewable fuel biomethane directly into the region and is produced by farmers from the region. As a result, the energy production improves the economics of grassland management.
