July 14 (Renewables Now) - Italian biogas plants specialist Sebigas recently announced it has been contracted by France's Fonroche Energie Renouvelable to supply two biogas plants in the northern and southern part of France.

This is a repeat order from the French company, which at the end of 2016 awarded a contract to Sebigas for the construction of a 1.8-MWe biogas plant in Gramat.

The new plants, Biogasconha and Biodeac, will be located in Bayonne and Loudeac, respectively. They will both be fed with blood, flotation greases, cattle pig and duck manure, fruit and vegetable leftovers, slaughter house leftovers, Sebigas said. Biogasconha will also use corn and cereal leftovers as fuel. The biogas produced will be upgraded and injected into the national grid as biomethane. The capacity of the plants will be 2,400 cu m per hour and 950 cu m per hour, respectively.   

Sebigas is a division of Exergy SpA, which is part of Maccaferri Industrial Group.
