Biogas: From Parma Pigs’ Manure to Green Electricity

Like many countries, Italy has set an ambitious goal to foster production of renewable energy from biogas. To benefit from this forward-looking policy, a pig farmer from the region of Parma has invested in two biogas engine power plants: the liquid manure produced by his pigs ferments with corn in a big green tank to produce biogas which powers the containerised cogeneration engine power plants. While the electricity generated is fed into the public grid, the heat produced is used to keep the pigsties warm in winter.
