Casademont improves energy efficiency with the support of the IDAE and ERDF funds.

Girona, 17 January 2019. Casademont, leading producer of fuets and charcuterie for 60 years, has remodelled the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) of its production site in Bonmatí-Sant Gregori, making a commitment to energy efficiency in industry.

This project was carried out as part of the first round (2015) of the Grants Programme for Energy Efficiency Actions – SMEs and Large Companies in the Industrial Sector, managed by the Spanish Institute for Energy Diversification and Saving (IDAE) and funded by the National Energy Efficiency Fund (FNEE) and ERDF funds.

The remodelling project focused primarily on the renewal of the aeration and agitation system of the wastewater treatment plant, which required an eligible investment of €177,170.00, of which the grants programme has funded €40,759.08, more than 20%.

As a result, the consumption of Casademont’s WWTP has dropped by around 670 MWh/year (80%), which translates into savings of more than €62,000/year, in line with the European and global trend towards energy-saving.
