04 Jan THE CONSORTIUM, WASTE BIOFUEL - NEDGIA- COFRADÍA DE PESCADORES "LA BARCELONETA", PRESENT AN EXEMPLARY PROJECT OF CIRCULAR ECONOMY IN THE FISHING SECTOR, IN THE CALL "PORTS 4.0
INNOVATIONS AND PLANNED ACTIONS:
On the boats:
1.- Modification of 2 diesel engines of boats of different powers to Zero emissions Renewable Biomethane, demonstrating fuel savings and Co2 emissions.
2.- Substitution of current fossil fuel with third generation biodiesel (from
from algae farming).
In the waste:
Use of discards and other organic waste at source, to produce biogas in port, by incorporating a new technology of mini biogas plants (maximum 1 to 3 Tn of waste per day) built on marine containers, to convert "in situ" in biogas or electrical energy to be used as "self-consumption" for ice factory, offices, electric vehicle charging in port, etc.
In the services associated with the port or Fishermen's Guild: Implementation of a certified renewable biofuel (BRC) pump (Compressed Renewable Biomethane) and Biodiesel certified as a biofuel, from the cultivation of algae in biorefinery.
In the port facilities or guild:
Installation of photovoltaic solar roof.
Contribution of renewable energy to the gas station, compressor, mini biogas plant and associated services, electrical loads, ice factory, offices, etc.
With the recent Self-Consumption Act, Apart from generating energy for the entire consumption of the port, the new regulations allow the sale of excess energy not consumed during a month to third party consumers located within a maximum radius of 500 meters, creating a new line of business in case of surpluses.
The company NEDGIA will be in charge of taking the pipeline directly to the gas station, which will provide certified renewable biomethane to the fishing boats of the fishermen's association.
