Weltec and Aquatec Maxcon to build Australia’s first AD plant

By Bioenergy Insight.

Weltec Biopower, a German bioenergy producer, and Aquatec Maxcon are building a 1MW anaerobic digestion (AD) biogas plant in Melbourne, Australia.

Construction of the plant, first of its kind in Australia, began in October and will be finished by the end of 2016.

The plant was ordered by water supply and sewage services company Yarra Valley Water, which with the construction is set to become energy self-sufficient at the location.

And surplus electricity will be fed into the national grid.
