VERBIO commissions EU-funded straw-to-methanol plant on time

In Germany, VERBIO successfully commissioned another major production site for the production of biomethane at Schwedt/Oder. The new plant uses a new internally generated technology to manufacture biomethane from 100 percent straw.

The development of this innovative technology at the Schwedt/Oder location is supported by the European Union’s NER 300 subsidy project, providing funding of up to EUR 22.3 million over the period from 2014 to 2019.

VERBIO Vereinigte BioEnergie AG has reached the first project milestone on schedule, feeding the first gigawatt hours of biomethane generated from 100 percent straw since October 2014 into the local natural gas network operated by Stadtwerke Schwedt.
