The biogas plant in Zuoz focuses on the disposal of agricultural and gastronomic waste. During the summer months, the plant is also charged with green waste. In order to produce electricity, it processes approximately 1,700 t of organic waste per annum. The agricultural waste comes from the plant’s own or neighbouring farms, while the gastronomic waste is collected from hotels and restaurants in the municipalities of Pontresina, Bever, La Punt, Madulain, Zuoz and S-chanf. The plant mixes dung, liquid manure and gastronomic waste in order to produce electricity, heat and liquid manure with a very high nitrogen content as well as humus for gardening. The thermal discharge is used for heating the fermenter, the hygienisation and the hot water. ForzAgricula produces 300,000 kw/h electricity per year (which corresponds roughly to the annual consumption of 65 single-family homes) which is being fed directly into the grid.

This easy hike through one of the most beautiful Swiss Alpine regions from Ospizio Bernina to the Glacier Garden at Cavaglia lets you see what green power is and how it is generated. The path in upper Poschiavo runs along the idyllic Lago Bianco, before winding its way through the Palü Gorge. Speaking of energy: Between the Berninapass and Cavaglia, your body will burn 0.34 kWh, i. e. 295 kcal – you can recharge your batteries with the energy of four apples or one chocolate bar. And did you know how green power is generated from cow dung, how electricity ends up in your electrical outlet or why hydropower basically is solar power? You will find answers to these and other questions on the 12 information boards along the path.
