Through a partnership with farmers in the Swiss canton of Ticino we help convert organic waste into energy used to heat local homes in the community.

Nature is the foundation for all of our work at Linnea, we strive to protect the environment by creating a virtuous cycle.

At Linnea we act as a part of nature; nature is the origin of our high-quality innovative cannabinoid ingredients, and nature inspires our team in all their work day after day.

Arising from this fundamental awareness, we’ve built a biogas plant with the scope of giving back to the planet. The biogas plant has produced impressive amounts of both heat and energy since it opened: 1,300,000 kW of electrical energy and 600,000 kW of heat annually.

That energy produced by the biogas plant is then sent to the public power grid, meeting the needs of about 250 households, while the heat is routed to the neighboring district’s heating network. The remaining inorganic matter is used as a certified-organic stabilized fertilizer for neighboring farms, thereby closing the loop in a natural, sustainable system.

Linnea‘s virtuous circle:
giving back to mother nature

The Linnea biogas plant is just one of the many ways in which we are committed to sustainable ethical business practices and helping the important Swiss community and landscape that we are a part of.
