€5.75 million raised – market capitalisation €15.8 million
Paris – 20 November 2019 – Euronext today celebrated the listing on Euronext Growth of Agripower France, a company that specialises in designing, developing and installing individual and collective methanisation solutions for farms.
Methanisation involves a series of biological reactions that produce biogas, which is similar to natural gas. The process can thus be used for recycling organic waste to create renewable energy and digestate, a natural fertilising material. Agripower France® is specialised in methanisation projects, offering its customers turnkey solutions that maximize profitability while actively supporting current policies that promote the energy transition. The company works as a one-stop shop for operators in all market segments using methanisation—farming, agrifood, organic waste transformation, and local authorities.
