Danish bioenergy companies explore turning biomass to biogas

By Bioenergy Insight.

Novozymes, Novo Nordisk, Dong Energy, and Bigadan are investigating the possibility of producing biomass-based biogas.

If the results from the pre-investigation, expected to last a year or more, confirm the preliminary analyses, the parties intend to go ahead and realise biogas production.

n Kalundborg, Denmark, Novo Nordisk and Novozymes have extensive factory facilities, which produce enzymes and insulin that are sold all over the world.

Biomass is a by-product from this production and is already used as a fertiliser on fields and also by Novo Nordisk to produce biogas at installations around Zealand, the largest Danish Island.
