Lemvig Biogas has been the largest thermophilic biogas plant in Denmark since 1992, established with the main aim of producing renewable and CO2-neutral biogas. It utilizes waste, residual products (fish, organic household, pharmaceutical wastes, etc) and manure to generate heat and power. This results in a good economy for the plant and for the households consuming the heat as well as helping the degradation of pollutants. The biogas plant generates more than 33 million kWh electricity per year – covering the annual electricity consumption for 22,000 people.
Lemvig Biogas also produces heat. The surplus heat from the gas engines’ cooling system is annually 55 million kWh heat, which benefits the district heating consumers in Lemvig, Nørre Nissum and Klinkby. 55 million kWh of heat corresponds to the annual heat consumption of over 3,000 households.
Lemvig Biogas is today owned by 25 local farmers in a 100 percent privately owned cooperative.
