Maabjerg BioEnergy started as an enviromental project designed to limit the emission of nutrients to water courses and fjords. A second goal was to help maintain jobs in the farming community and related businesses.

Furthermore the project was created to utilize the biomass ressources to support the community's energy balance and improve the climate.


Throughout the project we have succeded in meeting these goals.
