Experimental Center for Bioenergy System Technology
In collaboration with the Eichhof Agricultural Training and Research Center, Fraunhofer IEE (formerly iWES) operates an experimental center for bioenergy system technology in Bad Hersfeld (Hesse). This covers the whole process chain from biomass production through to grid integration. A biogas test plant with a raw gas capacity of up to 50 m3/h is available for demonstration purposes and pilot plant trials. Up to 6 containers with test equipment can be provided. Experiments on biomass preparation, residue treatment, thermal biogas utilization, and gas upgrading and feeding are possible. Laboratories are also available for investigating specific biological, chemical, and physical parameters.
