Due to the improving market for biogas installations in France, Biogas Plus has meanwhile entered into a partnership with a French company in the form of a Joint Venture. In 2017 this will lead to a first biogas project and Biogas Plus will build its first biogas plant in France. More projects would follow soon. In addition to this development in France, Biogas Plus in the Netherlands has developed a new type of fermentation installation for the fermentation of 100% manure, called the Compact Plus Manure Digester . The installation is designed to produce green energy, sustainable heat or green gas using only farm-specific manure from one farm. The first two installations will already be sold in 2017.
In 2015, Biogas Plus patented its own Bio2Net gatekeeper on the market. This product checks the green gas before it is fed into the natural gas network.
In 2015, the workforce of Biogas Plus expanded considerably, resulting in an increase in the number of employees to 25 employees. Partly due to the growing interest in the production of green gas, Biogas Plus acquired green gas expertise in the second half of 2015.
In 2012, Biogas Plus acquired a biogas plant for the production of 550 kWe. This installation was already converted in the same year and expanded with the Vacuum Pressure Tank pump system, which enabled the installation to process many different types of biomass.
Due to the success of the first biogas plant in Turkey, Biogas Plus built a second biogas plant in 2012 for the fermentation of 200,000 tons of manure per year and the production of 2.4 MWe for the same customer. The core of this installation consisted of two mixing / hydrolysations and a central Vacuum Pressure Tank pump system.
In 2011 Biogas Plus introduced its own pasteurization installation for the hygienization of manure and / or digestate. The manure processing obligation that would follow would make this product an indispensable element of biogas plants.
After having completed several successful biogas projects in the Netherlands, Biogas Plus first went outside the Netherlands in 2010 to build its first foreign biogas installation. It concerned a manure fermentation installation on a dairy farm in Turkey, which would produce 345 kWe. This project became so successful that in 2012 Biogas Plus was allowed to build a second biogas plant for the same organization for the production of 2.4 MWe. In addition to the first experience abroad, Biogas Plus also entered a biogas project in 2010 as the owner for the first time. This installation, designed for the production of 800 kWe, would be the first in a line of several biogas installations that Biogas Plus has become (co-) owner of.
After the first successful project in 2008, Biogas Plus built a second biogas plant in 2009. This was also the first year that, in addition to the founders, a project leader was hired to lead the construction of the second biogas plant. This second biogas plant was the first to be built according to Biogas Plus' own design and patent. This meant that a hydrolysis was placed around the main digester where all input products were combined to undergo the hydrolysis step there before being pumped to the digester as feed. Naturally, this project also used the Vacuum Pressure Tank pump system as a central pump system.
