Sweden: Development of a biomass, anaerobic digestion and WWTP complex
In recent weeks, various contracts have been awarded by Borås Energi och Miljö relating to the Energi-och Miljöcenter complex, comprising of a biomass combined heat and power plant, anaerobic digestion/biogas facility and wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) in Sobacken near Borås.
TGM Kanis Turbine will supply a steam turbine and generator with an electrical output of 44 MW, plus a turbine condenser that can deliver 75 MW of heat to the local district heating network. Veolia Water Technologies has won the contract to design and build the new WWTP, while Veidekke was awarded a SEK400 million contract to construct the transmission lines, an outlet pipe from the sewage treatment plant, a sewage pumping station and a mini power plant.

Canada: Construction of a small-scale biogas plant fuelled by zoo waste
This small but innovative project will be North America’s first zoo-based biogas plant! Set to be operational by early 2017, it plans to convert 3,000 tonnes of zoo animal manure and 14,000 tonnes of unwanted grocery store produce into power and fertiliser. The 500 kW facility will also prevent 10,000 tonnes of CO2 a year from being released into the atmosphere.
