CO₂-Neutral combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Sindal
Sindal Heat Supply has built a biomass CHP plant, which utilizes a newly developed gasification technology.
The plant is the first of its kind and experiences gained may influence the future development of energy supply. The plant opened in September 2018. The opening was attended by the Danish Minister of Energy, Utilities and Climate, Lars Chr. Lilleholt. According to the Minister it is plants like this that “… we will see in relation to future green energy – not only in Denmark, but in large parts of the world.” Cogeneration of electricity and heat (combined heat and power or CHP) is one of the most energy-efficient and environmentally friendly ways to produce electricity and heat according to the Danish Energy Agency.
The CHP plant produces 5 MW heat from wood chips, garden waste and other alternative forms of fuel.
