Magyar Cukor to build test biogas plant
Sugar producer Magyar Cukor Rt plans to build a test biogas plant near its factory in Kaposvár, west Hungary, deputy CTO László Hájos announced.
The company plans to invest Ft 50 million-Ft 100 million into the experiment to burn remains of sugar beet after sugar production. The biogas operation may replace the company’s full natural gas consumption, Hájos said. If the experiment is successful, Magyar Cukor may build more and bigger plants operated with biogas, with a total planned investment of Ft 2 billion-Ft 2.5 billion. The project could become profitable in five years, Hájos said.
