Heating with economic and environmental savings

In 2018, Danish Agro invested in a new biomass-fired steam plant, which saves the environment tons of CO2 and contributes to a significant financial saving for the Group.

The coarse fodder group in North Funen wanted a new heating system. With increased focus on energy efficiency, environment and costs, the company demanded a biomass plant where its own residues could be used as fuel instead of being transported for destruction.

Before the installation of their new plant, the company used natural gas to power production. The new plant will achieve significant savings while significantly reducing CO2 emissions.

The steam from the plant is mainly used for heat treatment of the feed produced by the company. Also, the moisture from the steam is used to keep the shape of the products.

The plant

The plant consists of a 2,000 kW Linka H boiler, designed for firing with grain cleaner. The boiler is also supplied with a multicyclone, bag filter and 20-metre chimney. The boiler is connected to an existing scraper system for fuel supply.

The steam plant at Danish Agro consists of a 2,000 kW boiler in a 3-pass design. The boiler is dimensioned to provide full burnout and efficient utilisation of the radiant heat in the firebox.

The residues from cleaning the raw materials are unloaded into a hall from where they are fed via a walking floor system, which continuously feeds the boiler where it is all burnt and converted into steam. This steam is transferred to the feed factory next to the plant via a pipe system located underground.

The plant is controlled and monitored using the installed PLC control which can be accessed from phones and computers making it easy for the operating staff to operate.

The automatic ash outlet transports the ash from the boiler to an ash container located outside the boiler building.

By using Linka's world-patented combustion technology, extremely high efficiencies are ensured.

CO2 reduction


ton per. year

This is equivalent to the average amount of CO₂ emitted by 500 cars in a year.

"We used to pay to get rid of the residues, so there is an economic benefit for us in taking them to the biofuel plant for incineration instead."
