Energy & Sustainable Development Goals

A pioneering model
We will develop a
pioneering concept to produce and recycle energy with the help of agricultural
activities. Similar to the digestive tract of a cow, organic waste is fed into
a tank, crushed, and made digestible.
After various biochemical processes, the gas that has been produced is burned, generating energy. This model will make it possible to be autonomous for the supply of electricity, gas, heating, and hot water.
Biogas and methanisation model
The process consists of collecting organic matter, storing it in a digester (a closed, low-oxygen tank) and converting it into gas.
Local partners working without chemicals or pesticides can dispose of any excess organic matter that cannot be reused for fertilisation and thus participate in this environmentally friendly and sustainable energy production.
The resulting gas is used in different places: in the restaurant’s kitchen, as fuel for vehicles and machines (cleaned) and for the production of electricity (converted by a generator). The cooling water from the generator (80 degrees) is used for heating and hot water.
The slag which remains in the digester is composted with organic matter and converted into fertile soil. Spread over the fields it will promote soil humus. It can also be resold to partners.
With the help of the heat that the cows give off, we are planning to grow vegetables in the barn during winter. The heat keeps the greenhouse frost-free and is recycled by means of a heat pump. That way, hot water for the hotel and restaurant will be produced.
