Case study: Plant for upgrading biogas and biomethane injection

30 January 2024  -  Corporate, Projects

In 2022, Pietro Fiorentini designed, built and installed the upgrading and injection plant in Cella Dati (Cremona) for the Egea Group and Santini Agricoltura Rinnovabile. In operation since March, the system injects biomethane produced from livestock manure and plant biomass cultivated in the adjacent area into the distribution network

 

The goal was to give value to the biogas derived from agricultural by-products of local farms, by transforming it into biomethane to be injected into the natural gas distribution grid.
 

The plant built by Pietro Fiorentini produces 4,000,000 m³ of gas per year, using agricultural by-products recovered directly by local companies.

The by-product of biomethane production, which is called digestate, can be used as fertiliser instead of chemical fertilisers.

 

In addition to biofuel, the plant makes it possible to obtain digestate from the fermentation residue, an important fertiliser that can be used instead of synthetic fertilisers.

Biomethane

Biomethane

Unlike other renewables, biomethane requires limited investment in terms of infrastructure. Moreover, regarding emissions, it is considered to be neutral as it is produced via the digestion of biomass from by-products, industrial processing waste and organic material.
Specific incentives promoted at the European level are making its use economically sustainable, and as a result production and use of this source are being strongly encouraged.
