Article Bioenergy Inside magazine: ‘The Dutch Agitators’
Brothers Jan and Toine Aben from Wanroij, North Brabant in the Netherlands, run a family business called Aben BV. The company operates in dairy farming, pig farming, and recycling with a biogas plant. These utilities are spread over four different locations.
In 2014 Aben Recycling contacted Jongia Mixing Technology. Aben was looking for an agitation technology provider which could deliver agitators for square tanks with an optimal digesting process. Aben intended to build a rectangular concrete basin of 40x80m and a volume of 32,000m3, divided into eight segments of 20x20x11m. The chosen design would save Aben building space and make the tank compartments highly compact.
