With more than 25 years’ experience in the industry, Xergi designs and builds biogas plants which are flexible, robust and easy to operate.

The company has worked on a strong collection of projects, with biogas schemes in the US, UK and across Europe.

Upon receiving an initial order, Xergi sets to work on a basic design which is then escalated to the main design phase where the project’s pipework and electricity work is defined. Xergi then take the project through the detailed design phase where the proposed plant is set out in 3D ahead of construction.

Xergi’s systems are designed to accommodate different types of biomass and are responsive to the ever changing face of the industry. In addition, the company is always keen to speak to clients to discuss how a Xergi system can meet their needs.

A spokesperson for Xergi, said:

“Xergi works according to a structured project model in all phases; from sales to commissioning of the finished biogas plant. The model works on the State-Gate™ principles, and describes the tasks which need to be completed at specific times in order to ensure a successful project both for Xergi as supplier and for Xergi’s customers.

“This systematic way to complete a project is the cornerstone of Xergi’s business model. It is an integrated part of our quality management system, which follows the ISO 9001 standard.

“With more than 50 biogas plants as references, Xergi has built up a large field of expertise in all professional areas – including biology, chemistry, engineering physics, procurement and finance – necessary to ensure a successful biogas project.”

Xergi’s biogas plant is able to treat different types of waste, from pig and cattle slurry to poultry and farmyard manure. The plants harness the energy which is present in the organic waste whilst at the same time ensure that the nutrients found inside can be circulated into the soil. Due to the special way in which Xergi reuses waste the company’s technology is ideal for clients looking for sustainable solutions to waste management.

Projects for Xergi include Veendam in the Netherlands; Foulum and Bånlev in Denmark: and Quarnbek in Germany. Closer to home Xergi was involved with the Staples Vegetables project in Lincolnshire.

A spokesperson for Xergi, said:

“By investing in the biogas plant Staples Vegetables are now able to benefit from their surplus vegetables by using it as a resource feedstock for the plant that turns it into energy and fertiliser using state-of-the-art technology.”

Benefits of biogas include the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions; a reduction in nutrient loss; and the reduction of odour emissions. Biogas is also a great source of green energy.

A spokesperson for Xergi, said:

“The market for biomass is constantly changing, which is why the biogas plant should be able to deal with changes of the feedstock used in the plant. Such changes require a flexible biogas plant. Xergi has therefore designed different modules to the feeding system so it can be adapted to handle changes in the biomass.”
