Problem / opportunity / objectives :

 

  • To recover in an ecological and environmental way the organic waste generated by the regional market gardening and fruit production activity: 10,000 tonnes of organic waste treated per year
  • To perpetuate the sustainable development approach undertaken on the certified “Organic Agriculture”

 

Solution:

 

  • Methanisation of organic waste using VALBIO METHAMIX technology – 1 liquefier of 230 m3, 1 digester of 1,300 m3
  • Biogas recovered by 330 kWe cogeneration, heat recovered for heating greenhouses dedicated to fruit cultivation
  • In service since April 2016

 

 

Results of methanisation:

 

  • 900,000 m3 of biogas produced per year
  • 1,900,000 kWh of electricity / year
  • 2,000,000,000 thermal kWh / year
