Since 2020 we have been operating a plant that allows us to recover discarded carbon dioxide from the biomethane plant, purifying it to the highest level of standards for food use, then cooling it to a temperature of -30 °C, transforming it into a liquid and storing it in two tanks.
The plant is able to produce 7,000 tonnes of liquefied CO2 per year (avoiding greenhouse gas emissions into the environment).
The CO2 produced by Caviro Extra is renewable and organic: the decision to recover it, purify it and process it so that it can have a second life as an agri-food chain product is fully in line with our concept of Circular Economy.
As a result of the joint efforts of Caviro Extra and Enomondo, a company in which Extra and HeraAmbiente each hold a 50% stake, most of the electricity produced at the Faenza site is obtained from a biomass cogeneration plant, capable of generating thermal energy at the same time.Product sheet >
Econat's green composted soil improver for use in organic farming (ACV bio) and mixed composted soil improver (ACM) are both quality composts, certified by the Quality Mark of the Italian Consortium of Composters. ACV bio is obtained from raw materials of ligno-cellulosic origin, i.e., from residues from the maintenance of public and private ornamental gardens and green areas; ACM is produced from mowing and pruning, vegetable waste and waste from agro-industrial processing.Product sheet >
