The lead partner Dry Fermentation Biogas, n.o. was established for the reason to expand the use of biomass energy in the form of dry fermentation, whereas the dry fermentation technology is not currently in Slovakia, but also not available in Hungary either. It seeks like the first of the two countries to set up a biogas plant using dry fermentation. The organization was founded in 2011, and its founder and also its director at the same time have more years of experience in the use of renewable energy. Its main tasks in the project are: to monitor compliance with all obligations under the contract for the provision of the grant, as well as to provide the course of the project activities, mainly the third activity within the project, namely act 3. – Setting up a new facility for the production of biomass and production energy from the biomass. Activities will be provided together with their cross-border partner, which is the municipality of Sárisáp. Cross-border partner is responsible for the implementation of activities like: setting up solar power plant and the utilization of geothermal energy, which will be implemented in the village of Sárisáp. The village is located in the northern part of Transdanubia Komárom-Esztergom County, between the foothills of Gerecse Mountain, located between municipalities Tokod, Csolnok and Bajna.
Place of the physical implementation of the project:
All project activities will be implemented at Slovak border in Western Slovakia, in Nitra Region in town Kolárovo, specifically in the part of the town called Částa. The region is among the most fertile area of Slovakia, here are grown mainly cereals, vegetables and fruits. The area has a very long growing season, allowing the grown of highly demanding crops. In this region is produced a large number of agricultural by-products and wastes that can also be used for energy purposes, for example for biogas production.
At the Hungarian border area all project activities will be implemented in the village Sárisáp. The project will construct two solar power installation equipment on roofs of municipal buildings precisely on the roof of the Municipal Office building of Sárisáp, and on the roof of the Sport Hall building of the local Elementary School. In the project is also planned the modernization of community center of the village for improving energy savings through the use of geothermal energy used for heating.
Objectives of the project:
The main objective of the project is:
Increasing the use of renewable energy sources on both sides of the border
- Establishment of new solar power installation, biomass processing equipment and use of geothermal energy.
- Raising public awareness on the use of renewable energy.
- Protection of natural values in common Hungarian – Slovak border region.
Activities within the project:
Activity 1: Project Management provides and manages the entire project. This activity is essential for the successful management of project activities. They check their progress and evaluate the obtained results.
Activity 2: Establishing the biogas plant for processing biomass and energy from it. Within this activity will be implemented the construction, as well as the supply of the technology for biogas plant. Energy will be used to heat residents of socially disadvantaged sections and Roma communities.
Activity. 3: In the village of Sárisáp, there will be built a new solar power plant with a power of 27 kWp and 43 kWp.
Activity 4: by the implementation of this activity the community center in Sárisáp become completely energy self-sufficient. Within this activity will be used geothermal energy for energy purposes.
Within the activity 5 are prepared a variety of promotional materials and will be used various means of communication. We create a new web page. The objective of this activity is the development and preparation of an online campaign, issuing brochures, giveaways and preparation of information boards. -Within activity 6 will be organized regular meetings of the project management, opening and closing ceremony and workshops too.
Introduction of target groups:
Directly and indirectly are interested in the small and medium-sized enterprises, local governments, institutions etc., which by using the renewable energy sources can significantly reduce their charges for consumption of electricity and heat.
The main direct target groups:
- Agricultural producers and organizations of the region
- Current unemployed people for whom it will generate employment.
Indirect target groups:
- The entire population of the region
- Implementation of the project is indirectly affected by construction companies, technology suppliers etc.
