Jüterbog Biogas Plant

The Jüterbog plant in the district of Teltow-Fläming, which has an electrical capacity of 1.8 MW, was commissioned in November 2008. Since June 2016, WELTEC is the owner and operator of the plant. The site of approximately six hectares hosts an pre- storage tank for slurry, three digesters, three secondary digesters and four digestate storage tanks. Only renewable raw materials and agricultural waste from the vicinity are used as substrates. So far, only about 60 percent of the available heat is used for internal needs and the local heat network. To make full use of the plant's thermal capacity, a sludge drying unit should be installed on the premises.
