In December 2021, the shovel went into the ground in the meadow of one of our customers in Oxe. In this hamlet near Deventer, five dairy farmers are working on a gas pipeline. This gas pipeline will supply our factory in Deventer with biogas that is generated on their own farm with manure from their own farm. We will use this biogas to heat the steam boiler. The steam thus produced is needed to press the pellets. At the moment, we still use natural gas for this purpose. Biogas is a good and sustainable - even circular - alternative. It contributes concretely to our goals of making our production more sustainable by using renewable energy.
Christian Muilerman, one of the five dairy farmers, talks about the initiative and how farmers can play a role in the energy transition in this video report.
