Weltec BioPower to Build Renewable-Fuel Plant in North Poland

Weltec BioPower GmbH, a German clean-power project developer, will start building a plant to generate renewable fuel from maize and manure in Poland.

The 2.4-megawatt biogas facility will be built in Darzyno in the province of Pomerania, according to a statement on the Weltec website. The feedstock, including potato waste, will be fermented to produce biogas for electricity. Weltec will start work in September with plant operation next summer.

Weltec, based in Vechta, is building the project for the plant’s operator Nadmorskie Elektrownie Wiatrowe Darzyno Sp Zoo, a Polish wind and biogas company.

Weltec has completed more than 200 biogas plants in Europe, according to its website. The developer had sales of about 50 million euros ($63 million) last year, it said in March.
