The physical framework is now in place

All buildings and major technical units are ready at the Wastewater Treatment Plant of the Future


The visions behind Billund BioRefinery have seriously taken shape now so that the outer framework is more or less in place. The construction of buildings and concrete work has been successfully completed and only minor details remain.

All major technical units are in place, digester, gas storage and engines are in operation and have started to transfer electricity and heat into the distribution network.

Thus the wastewater part of Billund BioRefinery is more or less completed.

This has extra significance in relation to the local wastewater network structure as Billund Wastewater Treatment Plant has been discontinued so all water from the town of Billund is led through a new wastewater distribution pipe to Billund BioRefinery.
