The new project, Collarmele, converts 73,000 tonnes/year of chicken manure and vegetable waste (fennels, carrots, and potatoes) into 500 Nm³/h of biomethane, utilising Biogest PowerRing and PowerDigest technology. The project includes a CO2 liquefaction unit.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled with the progress and success of BIOP’s first plant operation project in Collarmele” said Romeo D’Amore, Founder Alpalux Energy. “It’s truly a milestone moment for both the Biogest-Group and the renewable energy sector as a whole. This project demonstrates Biop’s and Alpalux Energy commitment to sustainable and innovative solutions. I can’t wait for our first green gas production.”

Biop Green Gas, a subsidiary of the Biogest-Group, specialises in developing, constructing, and operating biogas and biomethane plants as an active shareholder globally. The company is committed to sustainability and innovative engineering and is dedicated to driving the energy transition towards a sustainable future.

Alessandro Armani, Senior Sales Manager Biogest, added that the project represents a significant step forward in its mission to create a greener and more sustainable future.

“I am confident that Biop’s innovative approach will continue to pave the way for cleaner energy solutions and set new industry standards” said Mr Armani. “Congratulations to the entire BIOP and Alpalux Energy team for their hard work and dedication in bringing this project to life!”
