Efficient biogas production with smaller plant size
The biogas power plant has an installed electrical power of 250 kWel and a nominal thermal power of 360 kWth, exploited through a CHP (Combined Heat and Power) unit. The organic material used in anaerobic digestion is produced exclusively in the agricultural farm, whose utilised agricultural area in fact allows for self-sufficiency as regards the feeding of both the animals and the biogas plant. Hence, the biogas plant is specifically tailored to the dimensions and needs of the farm. The plant is thus an example for cogeneration from biogas in a dairy cattle farm able to achieve small-scale efficiency.
