Bunge Agrar in Niedermehnen, Germany is a family company that manages 170 dairy cows with Jungviehaufzucht bewirtschaftet.Der Betrieb Bunge Agrar in Niedermehnen ist ein Familienbetrieb, der 170 dairy cows mit Jungviehaufzucht bewirtschaftet. Their second mainstay is breeding bulls. They manage 140 hectares of useful agricultural area with a permanent share of greenland measuring 10 hectares. What's more, this company is a well-known training operation in this region.
Lars Bunge operates a biogas plant jointly with three other dairy cattle breeders for generating electricity and heat from liquid manure, dung and feed remains. A total of 750 dairy cows produce 250 kilowatts of electricity including offspring while developing a valuable plant nutrient as remains that releases less nitrogen when applied than liquid manure and dung. The idea behind this plant is ensuring that your biogas production does not compete with your dairy cattle management for space.
The Raiffeisen Lübbecker Land Co-Operative and TerraVis technical consulation has guided this operation and its biogas plant for a long time. For instance, this operation shows excellent results by using the highly effective reactant MethaTec Detox S that bonds sulphur in biogas substrate.
This plant went on the grid in 2012 and a gas analyser was at the top of the plant operators' wish-list from the beginning. Now, they can use the analyser to check the composition of the gas in each of the containers. When the prize was handed over, Lars Bunge said that "we have been wanting to buy this plant for ages." It's even better that it worked out this way."
