Cereal Docks, based in Porto Marghera, is a leading Italian group processing cereals for industrial and technical purposes and for biofuels’ production.
The importance of using cogeneration comes from wanting and needing to minimise the impact thanks to an installation of a 4.400 KW hours plant by AB that guaranted an efficiency of approximately 15-20% and a CO2 saving of 4.000 t.
At this site, electricity is used for handling solids and liquids and to powering the machines, as well as general site services, while thermal energy is used during the production process.
This great efficiency will produce a return from the economic investment in less than two years because, when fully operational, Cereal Docks can produce over 30 MW of electricity. It guarantees energy self-sufficiency, along with the highest standards of safety and environmental compatibility.
