Final monitoring visit of the LIFE DRY4GAS project

Published

LIFE-DRY4GAS at the II Forum of Bioeconomy of Castilla and León On 25th and 26th October the II Forum of Bioeconomy of Castilla and León has been celebrated in Soria, organized by ICE (Institute for the Enterprise Competitiveness) of Castilla and León Government, with the coordination of CESEFOR. Along these days, 25 oral sessions and activities, with the participation of 50 companies and institutions and with a total of 300 attendances have been developed. It becomes a reference event for the promotion of innovation and entrepreneurship using endogenous resources and creating job in rural areas. The Forum addressed the four pillars of Bioeconomy from different perspectives: Agricultural and Agro-food Bioeconomy, Bioenergy, Forest Bioeconomy and Circular Bioeconomy. The main conclusions of the Forum have been that bioeconomy plays a central role in the economic and social development of Castilla and León, boosting job creation and improving citizens’ life quality. The richness in agricultural and forest resources contributes to a strategic development of bioeconomy in Castilla and León. The great biodiversity in Castilla and León, based in renewable resources can contribute to solve problems and challenges, through the generation of new products, services and business models. Furthermore, a de-carbonization is need, so the context offers great opportunities. LIFE-DRY4GAS project participated in the session entitled “Biotardeo. Networking: Rural circular bioeconomy and participative networks of transference”, that took place on 25th October. The project was presented with a poster in a session of networking in which other projects and initiatives related to circular bioeconomy at national level participated.    ]]>

Attendance at Conference "Circular economy of sewage sludge"

Published

LIFE-DRY4GAS Project Conference: Circular economy of sewage sludge. Last Tuesday 20th June, the LIFE-DRY4GAS Project Conference: Circular economy of sewage sludge has taken place in CEDER-CIEMAT, organised by CEDER-CIEMAT, University of Valladolid and CIEDA-CIEMAT. Click on the video frame to see the Conference presentations: Firstly, Virginia Pérez, a CEDER-CIEMAT researcher and project coordinator has shown LIFE-DRY4GAS project and the sustainable environmental solution that the project proposes for the treatment of sewage sludge from Waste Water Treatment Plants (WWTP). Sewage sludge is dried in a solar dryer that uses residual heat from the process and then the dry product is gasified obtaining thermal and electrical energy. Felipe Bastida from CEBAS-CSIC, has presented the impact of sludge and gasification biochar on soil health, fertility and biodiversity in a grapefruit crop as a substitute or in combination with more traditional chemical fertilizers, as a result of the LIFE-DRY4GAS project. The presentation of REBI, by Marta Pilar Lázaro Yubero, has also focused on the fertilization of soil with ashes obtained in biomass combustion processes in boilers managed by REBI in district heating located at different provinces. The Conference has also shown the various management of sewage sludge in different Autonomous Communities and at different scales. Manuel Abellán, from ESAMUR, María Sanz, from SOMACYL, Raquel Moreno, from Aguas de Soria and Félix Gonzalo, from UVA/OCR-ELECNOR, have presented the current situation of sewage sludge management, its problems and future prospects in the treatment of sludge in Murcia, in towns with 100 - 9000 inhabitants equivalent in Castilla y León, in the city of Soria and in small urban agglomerations. The LIFE SMART Agromobility Project in which the University of Valladolid participates and which is based on the use of algae to treat and transform sewage sludge into a by-product with better conditions for use in other applications, has also been explained. Finally, from CIEDA-CIEMAT, Eva Blasco has given an updated view of the legal framework of sewage sludge, as well as the evolution of their regulations in recent years. The large amount of applicable legislation, although not always useful for the case of study, has been become evident. From a more practical point of view and to conclude the Conference, a visit to the solar biomass drying facilities and to the gasification plant located in CEDER-CIEMAT has been carried out. It has been possible to know first-hand the prototypes that have served as a reference for the development of the LIFE-DRY4GAS Project in the WWTP of San Javier (Murcia).  ]]>

Attendance at XV International Bioenergy Conference

Published

CEDER-CIEMAT was present at the 15º International Bioenergy Conference to present the LIFE-DRY4GAS project. The event was held at Feria de Valladolid, on the 5th and 6th of October, and was part of the II Renewable Gas Fair. It was organized by AVEBIOM (Spanish Biomass Association) and AEBIG (Spanish Biogas Association). This time, the International Biogas Conference revolved around renewable gas as a way to contribute to a Europe that is intensifying its efforts to produce local, renewable energy; and who is trying to reduce its dependency to the imported fossil gas. In this situation, Spain is also changing its tendencies in the public and private sectors. The CEDER-CIEMAT researcher held a presentation titled “Sustainable Management of Waste Water Sludge. Project LIFE-DRY4GAS”. This contribution leads the path to acknowledge the gas from gasification as a renewable gas, as it has been done already with biogas, which has been in the market for longer.  The 15ª International Bioenergy Conference and the II Renewable Gas Fair has become an extraordinary opportunity to meet other parties involved in the gasification process, not just from the scientific field, but from the technical filed and the public administration.    ]]>

Virginia Pérez, researcher in the Renewable Energy Development Centre, CEDER-CIEMAT, and LIFE-DRY4GAS coordinator, participated in the course. The main objective of this course was to make known the technologies and possibilities of biogas production in the farm sector. During the two days, short presentations were shown related to the process: biogas production, uses of biogas in mobility, farm integration, sustainable fertilization and emissions reduction. Furthermore, other LIFE projects about emissions reduction, fertirrigation and renewable gas were presented. The opportunity of assisting to a biogas production laboratory was offered. Virginia Pérez, the LIFE-DRY4GAS coordinator, made an exposition on July 16th, under the title: “LIFE DRY4GAS project: Waste Water sludge solar DRYing FOR energy recovery through gasification GAS”, where she explained the main differences between gasification gas and biogas and the gasification technology. Virginia Pérez provided a general view of the LIFE-DRY4GAS project, whose objective is reducing the environmental impact associated with conventional management of sludge from waste water treatment plants (WWTP). Other objectives are the CO2 emission reduction, acoustic emissions reduction, reduction in odor nuisance, hygienic improvement of the sludge, agricultural valorization of sludge and promotion of a green and circular economy. The proposed solution is being implemented in the WWTP of San Javier, Murcia. Currently, it is under construction, so several photos of the progress of the building works were shown.   A prototype with a solar dryer, a gasification plant, gas combustor and Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) to get electrical energy will be develop.
