ForzAgricula: guided tours of the biogas plant

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.
