The biogas plant consists of three 4000 m3 digesters with a total of 6000 m3 gas buffer capacity. The produced biogas is utilized in addition to the plants own heat production to nearby industrial users for process heat applications. Part of the gas is also upgraded to be used as vehicle fuel. The digestate from the process is used as a fertilizer by the local agricultural community.
