An important element for the development of the Anagni area
For us, there is no waste, only value. This is the principle at the basis of the circular economy, one of the mainstays of our long-term strategy to contribute to the sustainable development of Italy. In the 2021-2030 Strategic Plan, we foresee significant increases in the production of energy from biomethane. Thanks to the best technologies available and the expertise of our workforce, we can thus reduce the need for landfills and eventually do without them completely in future.
Specifically, we will recover material from OFMSW deriving from sorted collection of organic and green waste, the plant matter obtained from cutting and pruning carried out in the maintenance of parks and gardens.
In line with these principles and with ESG objectives, our Energia Anagni Srl company (with minority partners Società Ambiente Frosinone – SAF Spa and Saxa Gres Spa), presented a project for the construction of a new OFMSW plant in Anagni, in the province of Frosinone, just south of Rome. The site is in the Paduni Selciatella industrial zone, on an area of 49,000 m2. From the recovery of natural organic waste, the new facility will produce biogas and biomethane. As an important source of renewable energy, this could be an excellent alternative to the fossil fuels used by means of transport today. The people of the province of Frosinone would be able to travel on clean, green transport, thus contributing to the reduction of environmental pollution.
Maximum attention for the safeguarding and well-being of the area served
The Anagni facility has been designed according to the highest technological standards and will mean an end to the practice of disposing of this kind of waste in landfills. Applying the principles of the circular economy, it will ensure the correct management of organic and solid urban waste while maximising energy recovery.
With a processing capacity of 84,000 tonnes a year of waste from sorted collection of organic material and green waste from parks and gardens, it will produce, every year, about 4,600,000 m3 of biomethane – the requirement of about 4,000 families – and 20,000 tonnes of compost certified for biological use and made available for local agriculture.
Moreover, the new facility will have a positive impact on traffic, averting the need for over 1,200 heavy vehicles and saving about 1,200,000 km every year.
How is the facility set up and how does it work?
The facility will be formed of two main sections:
the anaerobic digestion section will produce a first gaseous part (biogas) and a second solid flow, the so-called ‘digestate’
