May 28 (Renewables Now) - UK’s Hive Energy said it has acquired a 50% stake in Dutch bioenergy firm DBG Group B.V. and formed a partnership on a waste-to-energy project in the Netherlands.

Hive Energy, better known as a developer of solar power projects around the world, and DBG Group have formed HiveBioEnergy with a focus on turning industrial waste into biogas and fertilisers.

Through their first waste-to-energy project, the companies plan to process 270,000 tonnes of industrial waste into 4,500 normal cubic metres per hour of biogas and 150,000 tonnes per year of fertiliser, while offering paper mills a method to dispose their waste streams, Hive said.

The project’s plant site is located in Moerdijk.
