ACEA is a modern Italian multiutility company, which currently provides services for Municipalities, private companies and citizens. ACEA is a multi-utility provider responsible for the waste and waste-water treatment plant. ACEA will perform the local engineering for the hosting of the ENGICOIN integrated units in view of the TRL5 tests at their premises.
ACEA will manage the overall validation operations at TRL 5 and contribute to vision studies on potential impact in the industrial context. ACEA will perform minor roles in the techno-economic analysis as well as in the dissemination and training activities.
Participation to the project will be through hosting on its Environmental site based in Pinerolo the pilot plant, by designing the right interfaces of the unit within the ecological site area and defining, with local authorities, the permissions/authorization. ACEA will be the potential end user and will provide all the industrial feedstocks to be processed. Among them also volatile fatty acids extracted from the digestate of a first stage of anaerobic digestion (acidification) of the OF-MSW.
