Biomass Power Plant Papenburg

Energy for the future

The modern biomass power plant uses the potentials of the circular economy. We primarily use scrap wood that has reached the end of its use cycle. The energy thus produced is fed into the public electricity grid and supplies around 35,000 households and businesses with “green energy”. The energy production is carried out in adherence to the German Renewable Energy Sources Act (Erneuerbare-Energien-Gesetz (EEG)). Fluidised bed technology ensures a high degree of efficiency. It requires less fuel and allows for an even incineration of scrap wood. All exhaust fumes are adsorbed and cleansed.
