Mexico: Bionatur goes for cogeneration

Bionatur is a Latin American company specialising in the production of high quality tomatoes, using the hydroponic method, for the American, Mexican and Canadian markets. The Bionatur greenhouses are located in Pastejé, Mexico.



The company has invested 120 million dollars in this production method, which involves growing the plants in water without the use of pesticides. By the end of this year Bionatur will also become more energy-efficient by installing AB cogeneration, specifically through a plant producing 2,926 kWt of electricity and a total of 3,253 kWt of thermal energy.
