HAM Italy is developing in Faenza, Italy, one of the largest 100% vehicular Biomethane plants in Europe, with an estimated annual capacity of 9 million kilos, equivalent to 140GWh / year.
The project starts from the biogas generated by 2 digesters owned by Caviro Spa, an Italian wine cooperative, where they recover by-products derived from the wine and agri-food chain, which is transformed into biogas. FNX Liquid Natural Gas, a subsidiary of the Ham Group, is in charge of designing and manufacturing the equipment necessary to purify the biogas, up to CO2 contents below 50 ppm, suitable for liquefying; as well as the liquefaction train that allows obtaining Bio LNG ready for transportation, bound for service stations. It should be noted that the entire installation works with electricity of renewable origin, not producing polluting emissions or greenhouse gases.
Biomethane or BIOGNL, also known as green gas, is characterized by its negative carbon footprint, making it a real and ecological alternative in the energy transition, allowing the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere and helping to combat the climate change.
On the other hand, this project will contribute to the Circular Economy, favoring the local economy, generating employment, returning resources and nutrients to the soil, and as a sustainable alternative to incineration or landfills. It will also allow energy independence, as it does not have to depend on international markets or large corporations, having an important supply terminal in Italy.
In addition, the new 100% vehicular biomethane plant will allow a reduction of more than 600,000 km / year in road traffic of the LNG tanks with which the HAM Italy currently supplies northern Italy, from the port terminals, thus reducing road traffic in general and CO2 emissions.
HAM Italy, with the development of one of the largest European Bio LNG plants for vehicular use, offers a comprehensive solution to customers who have biogas, taking charge of designing, manufacturing and operating all the necessary equipment that allows optimizing the process: Upgrading, compression Bio CNG, Bio LNG liquefaction, transportation through virtual gas pipeline and sale of biomethane at service stations. We continue to innovate and offer our customers products that are adapted to their real energy needs.
