First contract in the Baltic country for the Bolzano-based company, for the construction of a biomethane plant fed with biowaste

Bolzano, 14 October 2021. A new market opens up for Schmack Biogas: the company has signed today a contract for the construction of a biomethane plant in Maardu, not far from the Estonian capital Tallinn. The plant will be built together with a Finnish partner, BioWoima Finland OY, which will act as a general contractor; the plant will be built for the largest Estonian company in the field of collection, management and treatment of municipal solid waste, Eesti Keskkonnateenused AS.

Schmack Biogas will undertake the design and supply of all components for the plug-flow fermenter EUCO 1000 and the CSTR post-fermenter COCCUS 2400, as well as the electrical panels and the control and management system for the plant. The company will then supervise the installation of the components and take care of the mechanical and biological start-up of the plant.

Once completed, the plant will treat the organic fraction of the municipal waste and organic waste from the commercial sector from Tallinn and the areas surrounding the capital and will be the largest anaerobic digestion plant in Estonia. The biomethane produced will be fed into the local natural gas grid.

“We are really happy to announce this signing”, said Andrea Gozzi, Sales Area Manager of Schmack Biogas. “It is the result of two years of intense work side by side with our partners”. The CEO Nicolò Cariboni added: “The satisfaction for having reached a new market is great. Schmack Biogas has once again proven to be a key player in contributing to the sustainable development of our planet”.
