The board of Maabjerg BioEnergy has given the green light to start the implementation of the world's largest bioenergy plant in Jutland, Denmark. Construction costs for the plant are estimated at DKK 300 m (USD 48 m), and the EU has given DKK 28 m (USD 4.5 m) to the project. Investors include more than 200 Danish farmers, electricity suppliers Vestforsyning and Elsam, and waste company Nomi. The plant is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2008.

The plant will be able to process slurry from 25,000 animal units, and convert it into electricity and heat as well as returning fertilizers to farmers. The project has attracted attention both nationally and internationally due to the exceptional size of the bioenergy plant.

Last month, plans to build the world's largest biogas test plant near Viborg in Jutland were revealed. The plant will be a full-scale research facility which will handle slurry from livestock farming at the Danish Institute of Agricultural Sciences. When the plant is in operation, it will produce 850,000 m3 methane annually. This corresponds to the electricity consumption of 800 family homes and heating for 200 houses. The news was reported by Erhvervsbladet.
