In the city of Bitburg in Germany, a newly built biogas pipeline will soon bundle raw biogas supplies of up to 48 biogas plants from the German region. The 45 kilometer-long pipeline will transport the renewable energy source to a central upgrading plant at the Bitburg commercial, service and leisure center area. There, it will be refined into biomethane. The biogas plant network in the region can produce around 10,000 cubic meters of raw biogas per hour. Since May 2020, an initial seven plants have been sending 1800 cubic meters per hour of biogas to the upgrading plant, which corresponds to an annual volume of around 64 million kilowatt-hours. With this volume, a good third of the annual natural gas demand of the nearby district town of Bitburg (14,000 inhabitants) can be covered.
