Valencia, 16th September 2021 – REDIT and Cámara Valencia organize the Jornada Informativa Comunitat Valenciana LIFE 2021 + Networking Online, where the National Contact Point of the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge will present the new 2021 call and the LIFE ECOdigestion 2.0 project will participate as an example of the previous call project.
The conference is aimed at companies, public and private organizations that want to present proposals and participate in projects that may receive financial support from the program. To participate in it, it is necessary to register.
LIFE Ecodigestion 2.0 will participate as a success project from previous calls with the project leader Global Omnium. This European project encompasses an automatic control system for the dosing of organic waste in anaerobic digesters of WWTPs to maximise the production of biogas on demand as renewable energy.
LIFE Ecodigestion 2.0 is committed to making the use of biogas a reliable energy source to cover industrial energy demand as green energy to meet the EU target of achieving at least 27% of energy from renewable sources by 2030. This methodology is particularly interesting in Europe, where there are 18,000 wastewater treatment plants and where the energy cost is 0.8%.
The project started on 01/09/2020 and will run until 29/02/2024, with Global Omnium Medioambiente as the main coordinator and Finnova Foundation and the Portuguese consortium Águas do Centro Litoral as partners. Its budget is more than 970,000 euros.
