Italy / Romania

The AB Group has the products, the skills and the integrated approach to make it a unique concern on the European cogeneration scenario. It recently expanded its activities abroad, with an eye on European countries where cogeneration is acquiring an increasingly more strategic role.

The AB Group operates in two different fields which, at first sight, appear similar, but which differ significantly at technical-application level: Industrial natural gas cogeneration, centred firstly on energy efficiency and economic saving and biogas cogeneration, which is mainly for farms wanting to invest in the valorisation process of crops and/or livestock wastes and become real energy producers. Always in this field of operation, the AB Group also caters for the needs of municipalised companies, consortiums and institutions for the effective and sustainable use of the biogas produced by household waste dumps.
