The Minister for Climate, Energy and Utilities visits GreenLab
Dan Jørgensen, the Danish Minister for Climate, Energy and Utilities visited GreenLab to have a look at GreenLab Skive Biogas and hear about the SymbiosisNet and Power-to-X project. He was impressed with what he saw.
An important step towards the green transition was made in GreenLab when one of Denmark’s largest biogas facilities recently reached its full production capacity.
To mark the occasion, GreenLab invited Dan Jørgensen, the Danish Minister for Climate, Energy and Utilities, to come for a visit, see the plant for himself, and hear about the SymbiosisNet and Power-to-X project.
Biogas 2.0 – no waste and all circular
GreenLab Skive Biogas is not just a biogas production facility that produces methane. In the near future, it will use what is usually an excess resource from biogas production – CO2 – and turn it into e-methanol.
To make e-methanol, CO2 is mixed with hydrogen. And at GreenLab, we will have lots of hydrogen because of our Power-to-X project.
“It sounds like science fiction”
The minister stated that we need projects like the one in Skive to reach our ambitious climate targets. He also highlighted that GreenLab is proving how Biogas 2.0 and Power-to-X can work in reality, not just in theory.
“This project shows us that it is actually possible. Imagine that we take the power from a wind turbine and excess CO2 from a biogas production and turn it into fuel that we can put on airplanes and fly on vacation. It sounds like science fiction, but it’s happening right here”, he said.
