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 seven 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 Seat, 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 biomethane suitable for vehicle use.  Thus obtaining a renewable, abundant and self-sufficient energy source.

The biomethane obtained will be used in an IVECO waste collectiontruck owned by FCC Medio Ambiente, and three SEAT cars. 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.
