PRODEVAL established its first branch in Genoa, Italy, in 2018. Led by Luca Barbato, Managing Director, Prodeval Italia has established itself as a major market player in an area strongly committed to the biogas sector.

"We strongly believe in the Italian market, which is why we set up an operational office in Genoa, investing the necessary resources to develop this important market," said Sébastien Paolozzi.

The national energy strategy in Italy from 2018 is indeed favorable to the development of the biomethane sector.

The European Commission has approved the implementation of an aid scheme to support biomethane and biofuel production in Italy to meet European energy and climate change targets.

The program will encourage producers to produce biofuels and biomethane from manure and other agricultural residues and also to use them to fuel their agricultural vehicles, enabling the country to become the third-largest producer of biomethane in Europe.

The creation of PRODEVAL Italia allows us to have technicians present throughout the country to respond effectively to our customers' needs.
