Belarus Grodno region`s first biogas plant launched
Grodno region’s first biogas plant has been launched in the Shchuchin district. The technology that allows receiving electricity from organic waste was provided by a Lithuanian company. One of the Belarusian banks was a partner of the project.
As a result, the power plant with a capacity of 5 megawatts will annually produce about 40 million kilowatt hours of clean electricity for consumption within the country. This is enough to ensure the need for electricity of a whole village. Due to the active development of animal husbandry in the country, the construction of biogas plants is a promising direction of green energy. An agreement has already been reached with potential investors on the construction of twomore similar bio-power plants in the Shchuchin district.
