GE Jenbacher Engines Power Biogas Plant
GE’s Jenbacher biogas engines will power the new Lianong Huishan Cow Farm, which, once completed, will be the world’s largest biogas project based on cow manure, said GE.
The manure form 250 000 cows at the Huishan Farm in China will be converted into biogas and is expected to produce 38 000 MWh a year through four GE JMS420 Jenbacher gas engines. The energy produced will be sold to the state grid in China.
In addition to the use of biogas for power generation, the liquid (residual from biogas production) will be used to fertilize grass in the pasture and the solid waste can be sold as organic fertilizer, enabling the surrounding land to become a base for organic agriculture.
