The first methanization unit located Île-de-France specialized in biowaste
The commissioning of the territorial methanization unit Equimeth was announced on September, 16th by CVE, Atlante Gestion’s partner for the financing of biogas projects. Atlante Gestion contributed last July to the financing of this plant located in Moret-Loing-et-Orvanne (77250), in Seine-et-Marne.
This operation was developed by CVE in partnership with the operator of the Energy Transition of the region, Île-de-France Énergies, 15% shareholder of Equimeth and which contributed up to €900,000 in subsidies. The project also received support from Ademe Île-de-France (€680,000) and the European Regional Development Fund (€680,000). In total, nearly €12 million has been invested in the project.
Promote the development of renewable energies
This unit aims to treat and recover the organic matter of the territory. With an installed capacity of 23 GWh per year, it is one of the largest biomethane production units in the Ile-de-France region and the first project developed by the CVE group in France.
Thus, up to 25,000 tons of organic matter will be treated each year by the facility, half of which is biowaste. This is equivalent to the annual gas consumption of nearly 4,000 French households. The organic matter residue comes out of the site in the form of digestate, a natural fertilizer that can then be used by about twenty farmers partners of the project.
