Brussels, September 21, 2023. Representatives from LIFE ECOdigestion 2.0 traveled to Malaga on September 20-21, 2023, to showcase the project at the Greencities and S-Moving Fair held at FYCMA – Malaga. During the event, Juanma Revuelta, CEO of Finnova, spoke about the project in various parallel sessions. The team in charge, composed of Eduardo Mercado, IT Manager of the Finnova Foundation, and Manuela Granada from the Communication department of the Finnova Foundation, among others, made use of the booth provided by the project’s partner foundation to create a space for engagement with stakeholders and share the project’s vision.
Throughout the day, participants had the opportunity to connect with experts, similar projects, and potential collaborators. This event thus became an opportunity for exchanging experiences and fostering synergies that will play a significant role in advancing the project’s objectives.
LIFE ECOdigestion 2.0’s participation in FYCMA exemplifies the project’s commitment to building networks and contributing to a sustainable future. It was a day of meaningful interactions and promising connections, with the steadfast aim of ensuring the project’s continuity and persisting to provide renewable energy solutions as a response mechanism to mitigate climate change.
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 Repower EU.
