First ECONOMIZER SE 2.5 plant in Italy

February 2021

Italy's new biomethane feed-in tariff demands 50 % feedstock from residues or waste. Impossible for many – but not for the experienced biogas experts and agricultural entrepreneurs from Gestione Agricole Cavallari: to realise the extension of their 1 MW biogas plant for a parallel gas2grid line they selected the ECONOMIZER SE 2.5. Our first reference plant in Italy is now up and running, and for sure it won't be our last one.

6 ECONOMIZER SE 2.5 lines for Europe's largest biogas plant

January 2021

The Ukrainian sugar mill in Teofipol runs a 16 MW electric power biogas plant – for sure one of the biggest agricultural AD plants in Europe. For their next expansion stage to 20 MW the owner decided to use his own residual crop straw as main feedstock. To make this possible we supplied 6 lines of ECONOMIZER SE 2.5 units. The straw-biogas-factory is in initial operation now, marking a new milestone for our mission.


Pulp production from annual plants / Energiepark Hahnennest (Germany)

December 2020

The 3MW biogas plant in the south-east German village of Hahnennest is the venue of the most innovative biogas project of recent years: Silage produced from the north american Cup Plant (silphium perfoliatum) is processed in large scale with the ECONOMIZER technology and the AGROWFIBER upgrade we developped into pulp: 50 % of the biomass after processing is delivered to the german paper mill “Lenningen”, 50 % is an energy rich feedstock passed to the existing AD plant. Energy self-sufficient, regional added value, ecologically sustainable and carbon-negative: a project full of superlatives, groundbreaking for the pulp and paper industry as well as the biogas business.
