A sustainable strategy
Issues and choices
The sole biogas provider in Rome is the landfill and biogas plant of Malagrotta, owned by a private company. Waste, processed and subsequently landfilled, produces a considerable amount of biogas used mostly for own electric power plant and partly to provide biomethane for AMA waste collection vehicles.
When realized, it is planned a production of 10,000,000 Nmc/y of raw biogas, whose a part will produce, after upgrading, around 1,800,000 Nmc/y of biomethane, together with electric power to be injected into the grid.
