Dec 12, 2013 - German biogas plant maker Schmack Biogas, a subsidiary of heating equipment manufacturer Viessmann Group, will build a biomethane plant in the German state of Brandenburg, news platform euwid-energie.de reported.
The plant will be located near the town of Guben on the border between Germany and Poland. The total investment for the plant is estimated at EUR 13 million (USD 18m), Schmack Biogas said. The company will establish a subsidiary for the development and operation of the facility.
Construction is scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2014 and the plant is expected to be completed by 2015.
