8 million kWh of green electricity generated for the Italian grid
Environmental-expert.com, May 18th
Thanks to innovative technologies like EnviTec Feedcontrol, the Italian plant has a capacity of approximately 99 percent
Put into operation in July 2009, the plant in Volta Mantovana is the first EnviTec biogas plant in Italy. The country currently has one of the highest feed-in tariffs in Europe for electricity from biomass. In addition to cattle liquid manure and solid manure, the biogas plant in Volta Mantovana primarily utilises maize and whole-plant cereal silage. It feeds approximately 8 million kWh into the public electricity grid every year. As a further cost-cutting measure, the exhaust heat generated by the plant is used to heat the residence of the farming family.
