Biogas energy plant

The biogas energy plant is a facility that allows the generation and sale of electricity obtained by degassing the biogas from the waste in the controlled landfill site of Vall d'en Joan.

The biogas is captured in the degasification network of the landfill site and used as fuel to generate electricity through cogeneration engines. The electricity obtained, which is fully renewable, is then sold to the grid.

In technical terms, the energy plant, which is located within the closed landfill, captured 8.475.399 m3 of biogas in 2018, with which it obtained a net export to the electricity grid of approximately 14,200 MWh.
