Agricultural biomethane

Biomethane: the ecological way for the agriculture of the future

Plants for the production of biomethane within livestock farms are now a consolidated reality for the agricultural sector.


By-products and waste from agriculture are the main raw material for the production of biomethane, the most sustainable biofuel for automotive.


The regulatory framework favors the construction of plants also on a consortium scale in vast areas, which receive materials of different nature and transform them into biogas through an anaerobic process and subsequently into biomethane with an upgrading system.


The initiative is favorable not only in economic terms (sale of biomethane, compressed or liquefied, introduction into the gas network, with recognition of incentives), but also in environmental terms (production of quality fertilizers and the possibility of reducing the nitrogen load through appropriate post – treatments).

The sustainable agriculture of the future will have to use waste materials to produce energy and fertilizers of high agronomic quality.


Furthermore, it will have to reduce the environmental impact on the territory by reducing, where necessary, the excess of nitrogenous compounds, as well as the diffusion of odors during spreading.


The construction of a biomethane plant provides an environmentally compatible solution for this purpose, involving various operators in the agricultural and agro-industrial sector over a large area, also in the form of a consortium.


The plant generates biomethane, which can also be sold in liquefied form if the site is not close to gas networks, and a digestate which can be treated with innovative processes that favor its environmentally sustainable agronomic use.
