Biorig will develop 10 biomethane production facilities in Castilla y León. These infrastructures are of a strategic nature for the sustainable rural development of the community and are essential for the proper management and long-term recovery of waste in the territory.
Plants operational by the end of 2025
The company will develop a total of 10 facilities for the production of clean energy, equivalent to the consumption of 20% of the annual gas consumption of homes in Castilla y León. The plants are expected to be operational by the end of 2025.
Six locations in Castilla y León
The plants will be located in rural areas of municipalities in Castilla y León, in the provinces of León, Zamora, Salamanca, Valladolid, Burgos and Soria. They will contribute to the controlled management and valorisation of agricultural and livestock waste, boosting wealth and population retention by creating more than 350 local jobs.
Valorisation of agro-livestock waste
More than 1.5 million tonnes of agricultural and livestock waste will be recovered, producing a renewable gas that will prevent the annual emission of 300,000 tonnes of CO₂ into the atmosphere. Likewise, the by-products or digestate (the waste that remains after the process by which energy is obtained), once their potential for biogas production has been extracted, will be treated to become organic fertilisers. This will reduce dependence on chemical fertilisers and contribute to a more sustainable fertilisation of the region’s agricultural soils.
Latest generation technology
The facilities will feature state-of-the-art technology to ensure zero discharge: from capturing biogenic CO₂, an essential element for the manufacture of green methanol and SAF (sustainable aerial fuels), to harnessing rainwater, enabling zero water consumption and ensuring zero discharge.
