Ørsted and Bigadan have completed construction of the biggest biogas plant in Eastern Denmark. In future, the residues from Novo Nordisk’s and Novozymes’ factories in Kalundborg on the west coast of Zealand will be transformed into bio-natural gas and fertilizer. The new biogas plant in Kalundborg will process approximately 300,000 tonnes of biomass from Novo Nordisk and Novozymes. The plant converts the residues into biogas, which is then upgraded to bio-natural gas. The climate-friendly bio-natural gas can be used as a substitute for fossil natural gas and delivers significant carbon savings. “Kalundborg Bioenergy is a fantastic example of how we can exploit the value in residues. Novo Nordisk and Novozymes produce insulin and enzymes in Kalundborg which are sold all over the world, and now the residues from production will be converted into energy and fertilizer at a local plant,” said Thomas Dalsgaard, Executive Vice President and CEO of Bioenergy & Thermal Power, Ørsted.
