New bioenergy plant for Varpio Garden in Orimattila

Fimuskraft is building a bioenergy plant at Varpio Garden in Orimattila, Finland. The plant will provide heat and electricity for the greenhouse and will be used to promote the local circular economy.

The circular economy is a concept that aims to reduce waste and promote sustainability by keeping resources in use for as long as possible. Biogas is a renewable energy source that can be produced from organic waste such as food scraps and agricultural waste. It can be used to generate electricity, heat, and vehicle fuel.

FimusKraft has developed a revolutionary and cost-effective biotechnological method to treat and valorise biowaste. The FimusKraft Biogas Plant (FKBP) converts biowaste into highly energetic biogas, high-quality organic fertilisers and valuable raw materials. The FKBP can be used on site in a decentralised way to valorise biomass from farming, fisheries, food and beverage industries, restaurants, households and more.

This new bioenergy plant will help Finland move towards a more sustainable future by reducing waste and promoting the use of renewable energy sources. It is expected to be operational during first half of 2024.

Varpio Garden cultivates high-quality Finnish vegetables. The garden in Orimattila offers residents of Häme, Uusimaa and Kymenlaakso the opportunity to enjoy locally grown, tasty and fresh vegetables all year round.
