Biogas plants generate sustainable electricity and thermal energy.
In future, an increasing number of decentralised biogas plants will secure Europe’s supply of energy.
SARIA and its ReFood business focus on making sustainable use of collected food waste. This organic material is fermented in the company’s own biogas plants, each producing two megawatts per year, or supplied to other biogas facilities as fermented substrate. With four biogas plants of its own, ReFood alone generates up to 25 million cubic metres of biogas a year. The biogas is used at decentralised combined heat and power plants to produce electricity and thermal energy. In this way, ReFood is able to generate up to 60 million kilowatt hours of electricity for use in its own processes or for feeding into the public power grid.
The ability to obtain sustainable energy from waste materials opens up huge potential for taking action against climate change.
