HUF 2.2 billion biogas plant inaugurated in Miskolc
The city of Miskolc today inaugurated a HUF 2.2 billion biogas plant, a project fully funded with a European Union/Hungarian state grant. Touted as a fully self-sustaining system in terms of energy supply, the plant will use sewage sludge from the Miskolc municipality.
Work on the plant began in August 2011 under auspices of the project company Biogas-Miskolc Kft, a joint venture of local waterworks company MiVíz, Bioenergy-Miskolc Kft and WIS Zrt.
Biogas-Miskolc managing director Imre Mehn stated upon the project’s introduction that the plant “is a move towards the establishment of sustainable energy supply in the city as it will create the possibility to use the biogas generated in other ways in the future.”
Test operation of the biogas plant is scheduled for May.
