Anaergia “honoured” to receive prestigious ADBA award
Its Easy Energia Ambiente plant in Pontinia, Italy, took the gong.
The annual awards programme is organised by the Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA) and the World Biogas Association (WBA), and this year it evaluated a record number of entries from over 20 countries.
The 2023 awards were presented last week at a ceremony in Birmingham, UK.
Anergia's Easy Energia Ambiente plant prevents about 8,300 metric tons per year of carbon dioxide emissions by anaerobically digesting up to 36,450 metric tons of landfill-diverted organic waste and converting it into about 3,215,000 cubic meters of renewable natural gas (RNG).
The RNG is then injected into the region’s gas pipelines.
The plant also treats the digestate that remains after the anaerobic digestion process to create about 4,500 tons per year of high-quality natural fertiliser.
Easy Anaergia Ambiente receives the food waste it processes from waste collection companies operating in the region surrounding Rome. The food waste is converted into biogas with Anaergia’s high throughput and high efficiency Omnivore® technology and is upgraded to pipeline quality renewable methane using other proprietary technologies of Anaergia.
“We are honoured to have been recognized in this prestigious global awards programme,” said Kunal Shah, Anaergia’s chief growth ifficer. This facility is a superb example of private sector investment and partnerships between multiple stakeholders to achieve decarbonisation by converting waste to renewable fuel.”
