Social Energy

Social Energy research project

The Social Energy research project (co-funded by Regione Lombardia, CUP number: E59J18000000009, June 2017 – November 2019) focuses on the sustainable production of biomethane from the anaerobic digestion of chicken manure, agricultural residues and other types of residual biomass. The primary objective of the POLIMI team is to make the biogas-to-biomethane upgrading process energy self-sufficient and fully renewable by properly integrating energy technologies and optimized biogas upgrading processes.
