Biogest has signed a cooperation agreement with the Greek company Elakmon for further expansion of the company in a market with an attractive framework and a large availability of agro-industrial residues.
Greece has a huge market potential for biogas. Currently the major part of the electricity produced in Greece comes from the use of coal, while renewable energy sources still play a minority role.
Following the renewable energy targets established for 2020 by the EU members, Greece developed an ambitious energy strategy including attractive conditions for the development of biogas plants and has a big raw material potential.
Biogest has experience with similar residues coming from the Mediterranean agro-industry in the Italian biogas market such as olive pomace, where projects are under development and construction.
Biogest offers its PowerRing technology to customers in the Greek market. The PowerRing system and its mixing technology is able to operate with many different feedstocks, such as animal manures, straw, and agro-industrial residues.
