The countries of the European Union have set themselves the goal of meeting twenty percent of their energy requirements with renewable energies by 2020. Germany currently uses renewable energies for around nine percent of its primary energy consumption. With regard to power production from renewable energies specifically, biogas accounts for around eleven percent. In Germany, biogas has thus become not only a significant business segment for the agricultural industry, but also a major branch of the domestic economy.
Excellent substrate management processes and substrate quality are key to the success of a biogas plant. Approximately 50 percent of a plant's returns are determined by the value chain of the substrate. CLAAS machines are on hand to lend invaluable support at all stages of this chain.
We have been providing unrivalled support for successful biogas plant operation for many years. Find out more:
