The previous EON Mitte composting plant at Kirchhain, Stausebach was converted into a biogas plant between 2012 and 2014.

The composting plant had a processing capacity of 8.000 Mg/a of separately collected biowaste and green waste.

The plant has been converted into a waste fermentation plant with a total capacity of 30.000 Mg/a of biowaste and green waste. Furthermore, it was planned to build a new fermentation plant for 15,000 Mg/a of NAWARO. The biogas produced from both plant area´s had to be treated and fed into the natural Gas network of EON Mitte.

After successful completion of the approval procedure, Waste Tec GmbH was engaged as the general planner and additionally contracted with the supply of composting boxes and associated ventilation technology.
