• The companies will study potential opportunities for the promotion, development and joint operation of biogas plants
• The agreement is part of Enagás commitment to developing non-electric renewable energies, such as hydrogen and biogas/biomethane, as new energy solutions for the decarbonisation process
• This alliance responds to Ferrovial's strategy to develop waste recovery businesses under a circular economy model
Enagás and Ferrovial have signed a collaboration agreement in order to explore together opportunities that boost the production and distribution of biogas. Specifically, both companies will analyse projects for the development and operation of plants where biogas, produced at some of the waste treatment facilities managed by Ferrovial, turns into biomethane.
Biogas contributes to the development of a circular economy, as it is the result of efficient waste recovery. It is a renewable gas generated by the anaerobic decomposition of wastewater and solid municipal waste, and waste produced by the agriculture, livestock farming and forestry industries. The gas is purified in the plants by a technological process so-called upgrading. This turns it into biomethane, a renewable energy that can be injected directly into the gas grid or used by industry or as an alternative and sustainable vehicular fuel.
The agreement signed highlights the commitment of both companies to the circular economy. Enagás bets for non-electric renewable energies (biogas/biomethane and hydrogen) as key energy solutions for the decarbonisation process.
For Ferrovial, this agreement means a further step in the development of new businesses related to the recovery of waste, extracting sustainable energy.
