Nature Energy is the leading producer of biomethane for the Danish gas grid – at large industrial scale biogas facilities. Nature Energy has clear goals in developing and operating large scale biogas facilities. This results in efficient biogas and biomethane production and ensures society gets the highest sustainable yield. We develop and operate biogas facilities in all parts of Denmark, locally run, and centrally monitored.
The Prize has been delivered to Ole Hvelplund, Chief Executive Officer, Denmark, on Monday 14th May at the end of the Opening Session.
