LIFE LANDFILL BIOFUEL (LIFE18 ENV/ES/000256: Integral management of the biogas from landfills for use as vehicle fuel) (2019-2022)
The project is developed by a consortium of six entities: FCC Medio Ambiente, project leader and coordinator, Sysadvance Sistemas de engenharia, Gasnam (Iberian Association for Natural Gas and Renewable Gas in Mobility), Cartif Foundation, Iveco and the University of Granada. Co-financed by the European LIFE programme and approved in June 2019.
The Life Landfill Biofuel Project aims to capture and enrich landfill biogas to produce a biomethanesuitable for vehicle use. Thus obtaining a renewable, abundant and self-sufficient energy source.
LIFE LANDFILL BIOFUEL (LIFE18 ENV/ES/000256: Integral management of the biogas from landfills for use as vehicle fuel)
The biomethane obtained will be used in an IVECO waste collectiontruck owned by FCC Medio Ambiente. It has a budget of €4.67 million and will last 3.5 years. Once this period ends, it will be replicated in other landfills from FCC Medio Ambiente in Europe.
During 2022, the gas station has been installed at the Ecocental in Granada and during the month of June the first refuelling was carried out with the biomethane obtained and in the lorry and van. During 2022 and 2023 the quality of the biomethane obtained will be validated by carrying out more than 60,000 km.
