The Extra Eco-Energy division completes Caviro’s commitment to environmental sustainability with the production of energy from renewable sources.
Its plant for the anaerobic digestion of waste products from the processing of the sub-products of wine-making, as well as liquid waste deriving from the Italian agri-food industry, generates biogas which, when further refined, becomes advanced biomethane for the transport industry.
This biomethane, released into the national Snam Network, supplies the distributors providing fuel for methane-powered road vehicles, enabling them to use a clean and renewable fuel, because it is natural and not fossil-fuel based.
From the 1980s Caviro has been providing renewable energy sources and producing energy from its own waste products, and in 2010 it set up a joint venture with Herambiente, from which Enomondo was created.
This is a company with Caviro Extra shareholdings which produces electricity from the combustion of biogas together with marc, pruning and irrecoverable waste.
With its recent development of advanced biomethane, Caviro Extra demonstrates that it is continuing to follow its environmental vision, and that it is at the cutting edge of innovative operative processes designed to achieve this goal.
The production of biofuel sees Caviro Extra as a market leader in this innovative sector.
Within the plants of anaerobic digestion, as well as biogas, entrained flows of organic origin are formed which, when purified and concentrated, generate sludge that can be used as it is or, thanks to the collaboration and synergy of expertise from Caviro Extra and Enomondo, transformed into soil improvers and correctors to be used in agriculture as natural fertilizers that are rich in organic substances.
These return to the earth from which the grapes have been produced to complete the circle of Gruppo Caviro’s circular economy.
