• The island of Gran Canaria will host between 9th and 11th November at the Infecar fairgrounds, the 13th International Water and Energy Fair where the most relevant players in the energy and water sectors of the national scene will be present.
  • Juanma Revuelta, CEO of Finnova, will give a conference on Wednesday 9 at 18:00 where he will talk about: Canary Islands before the absorption of EU funds until 2030. Nextgen, REPowerEU and the Life Ecodigestion 2.0 project

Energy scarcity and drought are two of the major concerns of Europe today, which is why the search for alternative energy sources is becoming increasingly important. In this way, the visibility of projects such as Life Ecodigestion, 2.0, a demonstrative pilot project that allows wastewater treatment plant sludge to be transformed into green energy through technology, can inspire the attendees.

To this effect, the presentation and dissemination of LifeEcodigestion 2.0 aims to demonstrate how good management of European funds, collaboration between public-private entities and a commitment to technological innovation can help to achieve the objectives of the 2030 Agenda and build a sustainable Europe. A presentation that all attendees will be able to enjoy both at the stand that will be available throughout the duration of the fair, as well as during the intervention of Juanma Revuelta, CEO of Finnova, on Wednesday 9 November at 18:00, in an environment in which all the most representative actors of the water and energy binomial will be present.

About Life Ecodigestion 2.0

Funded by the LIFE programme, Life Ecodigestion 2.0 is a pilot demonstration project that generates biogas in water treatment plant digesters by mixing putrescible organic waste (slurry, poultry, MSW organic fractions, Horeca, etc.). It allows wastewater treatment plant sludge to be transformed 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 by achieving environmental and economic benefits by producing biogas through optimal waste exploitation. Thanks to this technology, it favours the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the exploitation of sewage sludge generated in wastewater treatment processes, thus achieving a positive impact on the environment

About the International Water and Energy Fair

After more than four years of hiatus, conditioned by its biennial nature and the Covid-19 pandemic, the 13th edition of the International Canagua and Energy Fair aims to offer a space in which clean energies are at the core. To this end, it will provide more than 50 exhibitors and conferences to facilitate new business opportunities, the generation of synergies, new generation models, efficiency, desalination, water reuse, investment, promotion and collaboration within the water and energy binomial.

All those interested in participating in this benchmark event on the islands will be able to purchase their tickets to attend free of charge on the website www.canagua.es  in the next few days.
