Built in 2008 to address the issue of the disposal of livestock waste, Biogas Wipptal collects a total of around 220 tons of manure per day from 64 farmers in the Upper Isarco Valley (Trentino Alto Adige). The ideal solution for the waste disposal was the installation in 2016 of a 1MW biogas plant that produces electricity, heat and digestate. The electricity (with 4 million kWh already produced) is sold to the grid; the heat, on the other hand, is used to dry the digestate. The digestate management process is both interesting and innovative, something that has enabled the plant to receive European funding through the LIFE+ programme.
