This project is planned by the local government in Bačka Topola and Mali Iđoš, by the management of the Agriculture Company “Panonija” and by the Secretariat of Environmental Protection and Sustainable Development in Vojvodina. Vienna Engineers supported the project implementation by elaborating an energy concept for the municipalities and a feasibility study for the biogas plant.
The settlement “Panonija” (1000 inhabitants) lies on the right side of the Duboka valley (108 m sea level) located 45 km from Subotica, 13 km from Bačka Topola and 8 km from Bajša.
A pig breeding (30.000 pigs/year) and an arable crop (3870 ha) are privately owned by the food processing factory “Topola”.
Energetic key figures:
- Annual biogas production between 2 to 3 million m³
- Annual energy production between 8 and 20 million kWh, whereof 40 % is electricity and 60% heat
- Output of biogas engine 1.2 to 2.5 MW
