Energia da oli vegetali
Asja develops, designs, builds and manages plants producing clean energy from vegetable oils (soybean, sunflower seed, rapeseed, palm, jatropha). Relying on a pluriennial experience in the biogas-to-energy field, Asja is the ideal partner to set up combined heat and power plants running on vegetable oils. With such plants, Asja can provide thermal energy to industrial users.
Asja employs cutting edge technologies to build 1 MW modular plants featuring extreme reliability and efficiency, thus ensuring smooth oil supply and regular production of heat and power.
Thanks to a dedicated team in 2010 Asja commissioned the first vegetable oil fed plant for a 999 KWe capacity and approx 1 MW of thermal energy. This plant was designed to run on pure vegetable oils (soybean, sunflower seed, rapeseed, palm, jatropha or a combination of one or more types thereof) or on spent frying oils from collection and regeneration facilities; after suitable treatment, animal fats are also planned to be used.
Asja has in-house staff possessing all the skills needed to handle in full autonomy all the stages through to plant commissioning:
Partnering with Asja means achieving top performance, both from a production and an economic standpoint. All vegetable oil fuelled cogeneration plants by Asja are designed with a view to being granted all incentives available under national laws in force. Asja is committed to drawing up ad hoc agreement proposals involving either holding shares to build and operate the plant or the signing of an oil supply agreement.
Being regarded as an innovative sector at a National level, energy generation from vegetable oil stands out a strong driver for the development of renewables in Italy. Indeed, it offers local institutions or private organizations based on the territory the opportunity to suitably respond to the European Directives urging the need for CO2 emission reduction. The project targeting energy production from vegetable oils is indeed in line with the National Energy Plan establishing guidelines to cut Italy’s dependence on oil imports to meet its energy demand, by fostering energy saving, diversifying fuel sources and reducing polluting emissions, giving preference to energy from renewables to a wider extent. Moreover, using locally grown fuel sources like sunflowers and rapeseed can promote local agricultural supply chains creating new jobs, with a view to an ever increasing environmental and social sustainability.
