Early 2012 saw Weltec Biopower begin the construction of a 526-kW biogas plant in Saint-Nicolas-du-Tertre, Brittany.
The plant is expected to be completed in October 2012, and will be equipped with a fermenter of 3,052 cubic metres, a separator, a solid matter dosing feeder, two storage tanks, a digestate storage unit, and pump station.
The fermenters are fed with waste from the food industry, regenerative raw material, pig manure, and intertillage. The famer who owns the land provides the plant site, along with the agricultural substrates.
At present, several biogas plants are being constructed and planned in cooperation with Weltec Biopower.
