MADED – Micro Anaerobic Digestor

for Energy Democratization


An intuition today that could become a revolution tomorrow. Forgot that enormous electricity generation system using biomass that goes from a minimum of 100 kw/h. We want to reduce the size to 5 Kw/h. This way we could reach new and huge segment of market and we can avoid the inefficiencies caused by the big size. We will offer a system that transform annual costs of our customer in savings and net profits thanks to self-consumption and selling of electricity. The climate impact is so relevant: with the implementation of just one system you can avoid the production of about 20 tons of CO2 . We expect to reach, in the next 5 years a margin of 3 million Euro per year with more than 2000 systems sold and 150 people employed. We are 2 companies and one external advisor working on this project: everybody with perfect skills for each single job.
