The San José Condominium is based on the experience of Condomínio de Agroenergia para Agricultura Familiar – Ajuricaba (Ajuricaba Agroenergy Condominium for Family-based Farming).
It is being implemented in the community of Colônia Delta, Uruguay, where dairy farming is economically very significant, despite its high environmental liability due to the related high organic load production. The project proposal is the treatment of effluents in 22 properties; by means of the implantation of plug-flow / ascending flow biodigesters; and the production of biogas.
It is estimated that the properties generate 46.64 m3 of manure daily and produce 763.81 m³ of biogas per day. The produced biogas will be transported through a low pressure rural pipeline and used for electric energy generation by means of a 75 kVA power generator group, having an expected energy production of 1,527.62 kWh/day.
