HAM installs 3rd Hamriko station in Lleida

HAM Group has designed, installed and commissioned its third Hamikro refueling station, which allows the refuelling of biomethane obtained from wastewater treatment. The facility, owned by Aqualia, is located in the municipal water service facilities that the company has in Lleida and is formed by a fuel compression system, using a low flow compressor, a structure that allows the storage of biomethane in bottles high pressure and a pump that is responsible for supplying this source of energy to vehicles.

The Hamikro service station is part of the Smart Green Gas project, co-financed by the European Union, with the aim of generating renewable biofuels, of national origin, for compressed natural gas vehicles. The wastewater reaches the sewage treatment plant from the drains, dishwashers and washing machines of Lleidan homes. It is treated and ends up turning a by-product into a valuable resource, where carbon dioxide is selectively eliminated ‘well to wheel’, from its production to its consumption.

This project involves an important boost in the research and creation of alternative fuels in the automotive sector, thanks to the production of 100% autochthonous renewable gas, which in turn allows the development of a circular economy.
