Construction of the Palopur biogas plant has begun
We are proud to be part of developing a rare biogas plant on the Finnish scale for Knehtilä's organic farm in Palopuro, Hyvinkää. The biogas plant is part of an agroecological symbiosis with the aim of a nutrition and energy-friendly operating model.
The Palopuro biogas plant utilizes farms side streams such as green manure follows, horse and chicken manure. The plant produces biogas about 2500 MWh/a. Most of the biogas about 70% will be cleaned and sold for transport fuel.
The construction works of the biogas plant have begun and the aim is for the plant to be completed in the autumn and the biogas filling station will be opened in the fall as well. The biogas plant is owned by Palopuro Biokaasu Oy, owned by Nivos Oy, Knehtilän tila, Metener Oy and Lehtokummuntila.
