Producing 400 tonnes of rice, 100 thousand litres of vegetable drink and 50 thousand rice crackers a day requires huge amounts of energy; that’s why Riso Scotti has decided to install a 2.6 MW cogeneration plant at its factory. The electrical and thermal energy produced is used entirely in the company’s production processes, giving a significant reduction in the energy bill.
Martini & Rossi, which has always paid close attention to its energy consumption and sustainability, has installed a natural gas cogeneration plant enabling it to take advantage of self-produced electricity in its production and bottling machinery, steam during its distillation, fermentation and plant disinfection processes, and hot water for washing, bottling and heating.
Every year the Artsana Group manufacturing unit in Brescia processes over 800 tonnes of raw materials and 105 million components. The installation of a trigeneration plant coupled with an absorber provides around half of the factory’s energy needs and 20-30% of its thermal requirement, yielding a reduction in CO2 of around 500 t/year.
One year after its installation, ICS Maugeri’s plant has worked for nearly 8,200 hours, producing approximately 9.15 GW/h of electricity. The full investment will be amortized in about two and a half years and will enable a reduction in emissions of a little more than 1,000 tonnes of CO2, a significant fact for a clinical Institute focused on personal healthcare issues.
The Fondazione Poliambulanza in Brescia has decided to install a 2MW trigeneration plant for the integrated production of energy for electricity, heat and refrigeration (for air conditioning of the buildings). The plant fits perfectly within the hospital environment, being housed in its own separate building and equipped with a noise-absorbing barrier.
Saint Vincent Hospital – located in Ottawa, Canada – has installed a 663 kW cogeneration plant to meet the facility’s electricity and heating needs. And its distinctive feature? Since the hospital is located on a hill, the plant has been positioned on a specially-created metallic structure.
The trigeneration plant built at the Garofalo pasta of Gragnano (NA) develops a total output of 2,651 kWe. Pastificio Garofalo summarizes the main derivative benefits as the use of energy produced by the trigeneration plant.
In 2008, Italdenim, a denim textile compan made in Italy decided to reduce their energy costs by installing a cogeneration plant. The positive economic and environmental results have prompted the company to illustrate the reasons of their choice to the public on the Cogeneration Channel.
The Soresina Dairy is one of the most competitive producers of dairy in Italy and stands out for the quality of its product and for strategic choices in the energy field. In this interview the engineer Arpini describes the main factors that led the company’s decision to adopt a cogeneration plant that meets the needs of heat and power typical for a company in this sector.
Menz & Gasser, a leader in the production of fruit jams in jars and single portions, chose the cogeneration from natural gas and biogas to produce electricity and heat at the Novaledo Plant (TN). In this way, the company produces much of the energy needed to meet the needs of the establishment.
Lower costs and increased competitiveness is the leitmotif of Orogel, the Italian company that makes frozen and fresh products. It has focused on cogeneration to reduce its cost of production, but also pays particular attention to the environment.
Wienerberger has always pursued a policy of reducing energy consumption and, thus, it improves the efficiency of its production facilities. For this reason the company decided to invest in the installation of a cogeneration plant. In this interview, the director of the plant in Imola presents the main advantages.
Inalca, a company specializing in the processing of beef and pork, has understood the importance of energy efficiency and self-production of energy. For this reason in 2007, it installed a cogeneration plant with an electrical output of 1800 kW that allows it exploit its internal production lines which have steam and heat produced by the combustion engine.
