BIOMETRANS

Promotion of the valuation of dry and wet biomass waste generated in the Ibero-American Region

Description

The BIOMETRANS project seeks to promote the recovery of dry and wet biomass waste generated in the Ibero-American Region, through the production of biomethane and promote its use as transport biofuel.
Innovative processes are designed that allow to organize the logistics of the collection of biomass and its adaptation for its treatment by anaerobic digestion. In this sense, different biomass pretreatment technologies are investigated to promote its biodegradability, the evolution of the anaerobic digestion process in one and two phases is compared, and different biogas refining technologies are investigated.
Also, a commercialization model of biomethane in the Region will be carried out, evaluating its potential environmental, social and economic impact.

 

 

Objectives

  • Valorize residual biomass waste through the production of transport biofuels, applying technologies and processes that are close to commercialization.
  • Evaluate the residual biomass resource in Latin America, taking into account economic and environmental sustainability criteria.
  • Promote technological innovation for the conversion of biomass waste into biomethane as a biofuel for the transport sector.

Actions

  • Diagnosis of biomass resources available in Latin America.
  • Update of the state of knowledge in biomass use for biogas production in the Latin American Region.
  • Development of optimized logistics models for the collection and concentration of biomass waste.
  • Implementation of organic waste processing technologies to produce biomethane in 4 countries of the Region.
  • Development of biomethane marketing models in the Region.

Expected results

  • Map of technological and scientific capacities in the Ibero-American Region for the use of biomass waste.
  • Selection of the most appropriate innovative technologies, in each case, for the pretreatment of biomass, its digestion and the refining of biogas.
  • Preliminary project for the construction of a biomethane production plant.
  • Economic and environmental analysis of the generation and use of biomethane in the transport sector in the Ibero-American Region.
