A new biogas plant for Varazdin, reports Decentralised Energy on September 6, 2016.
Weltec Biopower is to deliver a 250 Kw biogas plant to serve a pig farm in Varazdin in northern Croatia.
Waste Management World reports that the German anaerobic digestion is to use the farm waste to fuel the processing plant in line with the farm’s cycle of food production from the liquid manure produced by around 3000 pigs.
The plant also neatly fits with Croatia’s compliance with EU climate protection goals aimed at meeting the preconditions for obtaining subsidies for decentralised energy projects in rural areas.

With these grants, and fixed feed-in tariffs for green power, the country’s government intends to increase the share of renewable energy by about 30% by 2030.
Pig breeder Dalibor Vrček’s family-managed farm also has ideal conditions for establishing a synergy of animal husbandry and biogas generation, according to WMW.
