Request Visit

The biogas plant gives scientists a unique opportunity to study in full scale the effect on the process of changes on factors, such as biomass composition, retention time, and temperature. The plant is not reserved purely for the scientists at Aarhus University. Other scientists as well as private companies are also very welcome to use the facilities.

Experimental facilities

In addition to the main plant with the 1200 m3 reactor, the plant is equipped with:

  • Laboratories for measuring, for example, gas quality and volatile fatty acid concentrations
  • Two 30 m3 reactors and two 10 m3 reactors with four reception tanks and two solids feeders, instruments for measuring, controlling and monitoring the process, demonstration hall, offices, etc.
  • The possible assistance of researchers and technicians with a very large expertise in the area
