BIOFOS is the largest water services company in Denmark. Operating the wastewater treatment plants Lynetten, Avedøre, and Damhusåen, BIOFOS services 1.2 million people living in the Copenhagen metropolitan area.
Host of the BioCat Project, the Avedøre facility collects and treats 25-30 million cubic meters of wastewater each year and operates a state-of-the-art biogas plant producing 3 million cubic meters of biogas from sewage sludge annually.
BIOFOS’ interest in power-to-gas stems from the technology’s capability to increase renewable gas production without additional biomass, to reduce operating costs by recycling heat and oxygen from the P2G plant, and to improve the facility’s carbon footprint. The company will provide the land, carbon dioxide, and supporting infrastructure necessary for carrying out the BioCat Project.
