Tønder Biogas

In early 2023, CIP acquired the biogas project Envo Biogas in Tønder, Denmark from Anaergia; a company based in Canada that develops large-scale facilities which convert organic waste to renewable fuels and electricity. First gas was reached in November 2022. Once the full capacity of the plant has been commissioned – expected by 2025 – it will be one of the largest biogas plants in Europe, converting approximately 900.000 tons of green sustainable feedstock into 40m Nm3 of renewable natural gas. The gas is injected into the existing natural gas grid, displacing fossil gas. The plant will produce biogenic CO2 that will be used at European Energy’s Power-to-X facility under construction at the nearby Kassø facility, thereby contributing to the production of green fuel (e-methanol) for shipping. After harvesting the green energy, the remaining organic material will be recirculated as nutrients (fertiliser) for agricultural production in the region.
