Biomethane: the ninth connection to the Snam network has opened in Faenza
The ninth Italian biomethane plant connected to Snam's national gas transportation network was inaugurated in Faenza.
The infrastructure is managed by Caviro Extra, the Caviro Group company which enhances by-products of the agri-food chain, and is the first to produce biomethane using matrices from the agro-industrial sector in Italy.
The plant has already started injecting biomethane, which is used as a biofuel. It has a production capacity of 12 million cubic meters of advanced biomethane and when fully operational it will be able to supply about 18,000 cars.
Natural and renewable gas are among the best solutions for sustainable mobility, combining environmental and economic advantages. In this sector, Italy can rely on Europe’s largest distributor network, which is undergoing further expansion thanks to Snam’s commitment.
