Hydro Dynamics, Inc. (HDI) has announced Azienda Agricola Luzi, located in the Marche region of Italy, has installed the ShockWave Power Reactor (SPR) in their biogas plant. The plant has installed the BioSPR 15 model sized for its 100 KW capacity. It is the second fully commercial install of the SPR technology for biogas in Italy with several more planned
yet this year.

Hydro Dynamics LogoHDI has partnered with Three-Es of Milan, Italy for distribution of its ShockWave Power
Reactor (SPR) for biogas and other industries. Three-Es has created a strong foothold for the SPR technology in biogas in Italy and is looking to continue that success in other
countries and other applications.

Through the biogas process, waste food and agricultural products are converted to natural gas through bacterial digestion. The BioSPR makes the fats, sugars, proteins and starches more accessible to the bacteria, which increases yield and can reduce viscosity. The Italian biogas market is one of the world’s largest with more than 700 plants.

“Three-Es offers their customers a beautifully engineered SPR solution that, as their
motto says, is “One Step More’ ahead of the competition”, said Doug Mancosky, VP of
R&D for HDI. “Three-Es is helping to revolutionize biogas in Italy and the rest of
Europe. We are extremely excited about the immense biogas potential in both Italy and
