Easy Energia

Providing biomethane and creating a circular economy for Italy

Anaergia’s Easy Energia Ambiente facility in the Lazio region of Italy has the capacity to anaerobically digest 36,450 tons of landfill-diverted food scraps and other organic waste each year. It converts this waste into up to 3,215,000 cubic meters of renewable natural gas (biomethane) which is then injected into the region’s gas pipelines. Easy Energia also treats the digestate that remains after the anaerobic digestion process to create 4,500 tons per year of high-quality natural fertilizer and recycles enough water to cover all of facility’s water requirements.

The Easy Energia Ambiente facility receives the food waste it processes from waste collection companies operating in the region surrounding Rome. The food waste is converted into biogas with our Omnivore® technology, and the biogas is then upgraded to pipeline quality biomethane using our gas conditioning and upgrading technologies.
