OFMSW and sewage sludge for biomethane: two complementary feed stocks

Online seminar: Thursday 29 June 2023, ore 15:00-17:00

This first webinar is dedicated to deepening two aspects in particular: the regulatory and authorization framework, in which it is possible to create mixed systems, also with reference to the destination of the digestate, as well as the experiences of using this digestate in agriculture, in light of the replacement of chemical fertilizers.

  • Legal aspects, regulatory and authorisations (Avv. Ferraris)
  • Agronomic aspects: what happens when using digestate in agriculture; possibility of recovering phosphates; advantages and disadvantages (Fabrizio Adani, Department of Agricultural and Agro-environmental Sciences, University of Milan)
  • Specificity of upgrading for biomethane from sludge and OFMSW (Luca Barbato, Prodeval)
  • Some industry experiences (Federica Barone, Acqua e Sole)
