The state-of-the-art anaerobic treatment unit has been put into operation at the Kri Kri facility in Serres. This is an investment of 6 million euros implemented by the Greek dairy industry in the context of its transition to the cyclical model of Sustainable Development and Prosperity.
The plant has already started the production of biogas using exclusively the liquid waste of the ice cream and dairy plant as a raw material, as well as the whey resulting from the draining of yogurt.
The biogas produced through anaerobic treatment is utilized within the company’s facilities, helping to reduce the use of natural gas. Much of the plant’s need for natural gas is met by the biogas produced.
At the end of next month, the 998kW power cogeneration unit is expected to be put into operation, which will receive the produced biogas. The electricity that will be generated will then be available to the HEDNO network.
The benefits from the implementation of the investment are multiple, as mentioned in relevant information. Regarding the environmental part, the company has solved the problem of whey management definitively and in the best possible way, while at the same time reducing its environmental footprint, reducing, among other things, the annual CO2 emissions at the factory.
In addition, the reduction of gas consumption contributes to the reduction of operating costs of the plant, especially in the current situation where there are large increases in the field of energy.
It is also worth mentioning that this investment was made entirely with own funds and is a practical proof that Kri Kri is transforming its production model based on ESG standards.
