Madrid, Spain – LIFE ECOdigestion 2.0 project visited the WEX Global forum, held in Madrid from March 4th to 6th, 2024. Juanma Revuelta, CEO of Finnova Foundation, presented the project as a good example of best practices in water and energy management, for its forward-thinking approach to environmental challenges, particularly in wastewater treatment.

The forum served as an invaluable platform for LIFE ECOdigestion 2.0 to generate new synergies and expand its network within the global community of environmental thought leaders, innovators, and industry experts. The event facilitated a dynamic exchange of ideas, fostering discussions on sustainable solutions for the pressing issues of water scarcity, energy consumption, and climate change.

The presence of LIFE ECOdigestion 2.0 at WEX Global 2024 underlines the importance of collaborative efforts in driving environmental progress. It marks a significant milestone in the project’s journey, reflecting a shared commitment to leveraging technology for the betterment of our ecosystems and communities.

About LIFE ECOdigestion 2.0

LIFE ECOdigestion 2.0 is a pilot demonstration project, funded by LIFE Programme and with a budget of more than 970,000 EUR, which generates biogas in sewage treatment plant digesters by mixing putrescible organic waste (slurry, poultry, organic fractions, MSW, horeca, etc.), thus transforming sewage sludge into green energy through technology. The initiative led by Global Omnium, (Spain), in collaboration with the Finnova Foundation (Belgium) and Águas do Centro Litoral (Portugal) aims to become the most versatile digestion control tool on the market, achieving environmental and economic benefits through the production of biogas by making optimal use of waste. Thanks to this technology, it favours the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the use of sewage sludge generated in wastewater treatment processes, thus achieving a positive impact on the environment. This programme is easily scalable with other funds such as FEDER, NextGenerationEU or RePowerEU.
