Enagás and Ferrovial partner to develop new biogas projects in Spain
Enagás and Ferrovial have signed a collaboration agreement in order to explore together opportunities that boost the production and distribution of biogas. Specifically, both companies will analyze projects for the development and operation of plants where biogas, produced at some of the waste treatment facilities managed by Ferrovial, turns into biomethane. The agreement signed highlights the commitment of both companies to the circular economy. Enagás bets for non-electric renewable energies (biogas/biomethane and hydrogen) as key energy solutions for the decarbonization process. For Ferrovial, this agreement means a further step in the development of new businesses related to the recovery of waste, extracting sustainable energy. Biogas contributes to the development of a circular economy, as it is the result of efficient waste recovery. It is a renewable gas generated by the anaerobic decomposition of wastewater and solid municipal waste, and waste produced by the agriculture, livestock farming and forestry industries. The gas is purified in the plants by a technological process so-called upgrading. This turns it into biomethane, a renewable energy that can be injected directly into the gas grid or used by industry or as an alternative vehicle fuel. Biogas is a clean and renewable energy and will be one of the many topics addressed at AltFuels Iberia 2019, taking place on 11-14 June at IFEMA Trade Fair Center, in Madrid. It will be an event consisting of first level conferences and exhibition of vehicles of all kinds, refueling stations, components, plants, road and marine engines, as well as the entire universe of the alternative fuels industry with the latest technological developments, multiple options for networking, business and new advances.
