[ Bayern Biogas Plant, near Munich (chargeable) ]

Gut Karlshof holds the distinction of being the sole property in the city of Munich that houses a biogas plant. It is renowned for its ox farm, which serves as the primary supplier to the ox roastery at the Oktoberfest.

The biogas plant was initially constructed in 1999. In 2008, the capacity of the combined heat and power plant (CHP) underwent expansion, incorporating a new motor that boosted its capacity to 250 kW. A year later, further expansion took place, introducing a second CHP (265 kW) equipped with an exhaust gas turbine.

The system receives a combination of inputs, including manure and liquid manure generated by their own oxen (approximately 8-10 tons per day), along with a substrate mix comprising 60% silo maize and 40% grass. (Source: Fachverband Biogas)

We depart at 12:30 in front of SCCM. The duration of this tour, excluding travel time, is approximately one hour.
