A sustainable highlight


Thirty years ago, the European Union launched the Cohesion Policy, to support the development and growth within the EU. During 2018, the 30th anniversary of this Cohesion Policy was celebrated with various local initiatives within the EU. In association to this, the Italian Ministry of Economic Development (MISE) created an E-book, to present 12 special Italian initiatives that were supported by EU funding. 

In this E-book, Capua BioServices is highlighted as part of the "Programma Operativo Interregionale Energie Rinnovabili e Risparmio Energetico" (POI 2007-2013). At a total investment of 2.4 million, the installation of a trigeneration unit was completed at the Capua BioServices facility in 2015.

The TriGen unit produces thermal, electric and chilled water in a very efficient manner, so it contributes to the continuous improvement of Capua BioServices' focus on Health, Safety and Environment. The TriGen unit so far has supported to reduce company emissions to the environment by replacing the consumption of electricity with methane gas, which has led to up to 25% reduction in energy procurement costs.
