SCAM was founded in Carpi, Modena in 1951.
In 1987, SCAM was the first in Italy to offer an insecticide of biological origin, thus demonstrating its business philosophy and attention to the environment. Today SCAM employs more than 130 people and is a national leader in special fertilisers and nutritional supplements.



Covering a total area of 147,000 square metres, of which 38,000 indoors, the SCAM plant boasts an annual production capacity of 130,000 tonnes of organic and mineral fertilisers, making it a leader in the national market.
The plant has an annual consumption of 4,400 MWh of electricity and 13,832 MWh of thermal energy used for the drying of production cycles.



The remote monitoring system was customised directly by CPL CONCORDIA based on the customer’s needs in order to assume the characteristics of a multifunctional system that allows an integrated management of the systems, being able to coexist with the existing remote monitoring system.
The tool used by CPL CONCORDIA consists of a programmable logic controller (PLC) and a flexible and powerful human machine interface (SCADA, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) able to control a wide variety of devices and respond in every moment to the customer’s production needs.
With more than 35 years of experience and over 500 installed plants, CPL is the most reliable partner for the construction and maintenance of co-generation plants fuelled by methane and biogas, able to ensure the best management and maintenance performance to maximise energy efficiency and profit for the benefit of customers and their businesses.



  • Energy savings: settings designed to meet the needs of the plant, with the aim of optimising its operation and minimising costs. The primary energy savings thanks to the installation of the remotely monitored co-generation service amounted to 3.5%, thus contributing to a total primary energy savings (with co-generation) equal to 24.2%
  • Maintenance savings: thanks to the remote monitoring of the systems’ operations, it was possible to facilitate and reduce work required of the technical staff
  • Improvement of plant safety and reliability
  • Simplification of system management with regard to the setting of operating parameters, the scheduling of system start-ups and shutdowns, and setting circuit setpoints
