Genia Bioenergy has announced plans to implement a second biomethane plant in the  province of Salamanca, in the town of Machacón in Spain, involving an investment of around €25 million.
The plant will allow local livestock farmers to sustainably manage up to 150,000 tonnes of manure and slurry each year, according to the organisation.
The plant, which will transform livestock waste into energy, organic fertilisers and compost in the municipality, was announced at a ceremony attended by Genia Bioenergy CEO Gabriel Butler; the mayoress of Machacón, Eva María Picado; and Ángel José Martín, director of Tecnia, which is advising the project.
Also in attendance were numerous livestock farmers; the territorial delegate of the Junta de Castilla y León; Eloy Ruiz, the president of the Provincial Council Francisco Javier Iglesias; and the mayors of nearby towns who have shown interest in the project.
The Machacón facility will produce about 70 GWh/year of biomethane that will be injected into the distribution network.
This gas could supply 8% of the businesses and homes in the province of Salamanca, said Genia Bioenergy.
