Plant size: 250 Nm3/h biomethane

One of the most important biological waste recovery units in this area, it produces biogas from manure, agricultural waste, and food industry waste.

The Fontainebleau region, where the plant is located, is well known for its equestrian tradition. The relocation of nearby mushroom farms, which were historically the main recipients of the manure, led to the need to think of alternative ways to recycle this biomass and this became an opportunity to develop the Equimeth project.

Equimeth has the advantage of being able to supply various municipalities in the area (Moret-Loing-et-Orvanne, Fontainebleau, Saint-Mammès, Avon, Thomery, or Champagne-sur-Seine) up to 15% of the gas consumption of the inhabitants of these towns and to treat most of the area’s biological waste through pasteurization.

Plant’s production is equivalent to the annual gas consumption of 1,350 families and will prevent the emission of nearly 7,200 tons of CO2-eq per year.
