Promoted by the CAP and Core Group, the Sesto San Giovanni BioPlatform is the industrial symbiosis project that is transforming existing structures consisting of a waste-to-energy plant and purifier into a bioplatform dedicated to the carbon neutral circular economy, because it has zero CO2 emissions of fossil origin.

The symbiosis between the current waste-to-energy plant and purifier, which already has 2 biodigesters, will make it possible to convert the area into a green and highly innovative hub, the only one in Italy. The new structure will provide for two production lines: the first dedicated to the thermal treatment of sludge coming from water purification for the production of thermal energy and fertilizers; the second an anaerobic digestion line for the treatment of wet waste (OFMSW) to produce biomethane.
