Ever since the 1980s, Caviro Extra has been producing biogas, a gaseous fuel obtained from the fermentation in the absence of oxygen (anaerobic digestion) of residual materials from the food processing industry. The process is carried out at a controlled temperature by active microorganisms that convert the raw material into biogas, most of which consists of methane, and the remainder of CO2 and other minor components.Product sheet >
