Biogas plant Nemščak

The Pig Farm Nemščak is one of the ten food producing companies associated in the Slovenian Panvita Group. In 2005 the Group established a special company – KG Rakičan–Ekoteh – in order to undertake the project of the construction of a biogas plant. The main purpose of building the biogas plant was to treat the animal by-products from this farm and from the other Panvita Group companies as well and to utilise the energy in an environmentally friendly way. The project was an upgrade of the pre-existing biological water treatment plant at the farm.

Final Product Type heat and electricity
Capacity electric capacity 1,5 GW
thermal capacity 1,5 MW (cogeneration unit capacity)
cooling capacity /
Total 1,65 GW
Output Internal Use The biogas is used for producing heat for heating the farm complex and the biogas units.

External Use Electricity is sent to the national grid. As the plant has the status of qualified producer of electricity, it falls under the feed-in-tariff system. It covers approximately the electricity needs of 2,500 households

Disposal as fertilizer on 3,500 ha
Concurrence of use Pig farm does not have to pay for the treatment and disposal of animal wastes results in financial savings as well.
Residue usage /
savings of CO2 9,000 t/a
savings of Heating oil 650,000 l/a
Economy Budget Total Budget 8,300,000 EUR
