Brussels, September 21, 2023. LIFE ECOdigestion 2.0 project was presented by Juanma Revuelta, CEO of the Finnova Foundation, during a private talk held at the Uppery Club, an exclusive executive leadership club located in Malaga.
During the meeting, various strategies for replicating the project were explored, and its potential integration into other European programs was considered, considering the versatility of biogas and its potential use as, for example, vehicle fuel.
This event met the participation of representatives from key sectors such as sustainable mobility, sustainable urban development, and tourism. This opportunity provided a space to foster synergies and outline a plan for optimizing the project’s outcomes.
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.
