Montbrison: news of Atlante's financing projects in biogas

Our company is pleased to announe its participation of €2,3M in the financing of a territorial methanization project in France, whose development is ensured by the CVE group.

A territorial methanization project under construction

After partnering with CVE and contributing last July to the financing of the two methanization units Equimeth and De Breuilh, Atlante Gestion has allowed the financing of the construction and commissioning of the Montbrison power plant (42), located in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. This project was developped by CVE in partnership with Sem’Soleil and with the support of the local authorities : Loire Forez agglomeration and the City of Montbrison.

This project has been under construction since January 2021 and has obtained all the administrative authorizations. i.e. a building permit, an administrative authorization to operate a connection offer and secure gas purchase tariff. It has also already obtained bank financing as well as financial support from the European Regional Development Funds for the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes ADEME and the Loire-Bretagne Water Agency for a total of €1.075.000.

Contributing to the financing of the Energy Transition

The objective of this unit is to treat and valorize the organic materials of the territory. It will produce biomethane, which will be injected locally into the natural gas distribution network by the end of the summer of 2022, as well as an organo-mineral fertilizer, which will also be recovered locally.

Up to 25,000 tons of organic material will be treated each year the facility, most of which will come from a supply radius of less than 40 km. This is equivalent to the annual gas consumption of nearly 3,800 French households.
