“Three cows can give a family green energy for a year.”
Following the entry of the Antwerp investment company Ackermans & van Haaren (AvH), Biolectric is preparing itself for the commercial roll-out of biogas installations throughout Europe.

Climate is of course a hot topic at the moment.”
Quickly earned back.
