Naturgy and the Lecta Group have signed a renewable gas supply agreement that can facilitate the efficient decarbonisation of the industrial group's activity. Biomethane will be used by Lecta's production centers located in Leitza (Navarra) and Zaragoza.
This is the second major industrial agreement for the sale of biomethane by Naturgy, following a deal with Inditex in January.
The renewable gas supplied by
Naturgy has the Guarantees of Origin and Sustainability Tests certified so that the paper group can offset the emissions derived from its activity and comply with its sustainability commitments.
This agreement represents an important milestone as the first major paper company in
Naturgy's customer portfolio to use biomethane in its production processes.
The volume of supply signed between the parties is equivalent to the annual gas consumption of more than 800 homes and will avoid the emission of 740 tons of CO2 equivalent, which is a volume of emissions similar to that of 500 cars, they said.
According to a report by Sedigas and PwC, Spain has the potential to produce 163 TWh per year, a figure equivalent to almost half of the country's natural gas consumption.
For this reason, the promotion of its production and consumption is currently one of the most efficient ways to promote the decarbonisation of the energy sector, according to the organisations.
The signing of this contract between
Lecta and Naturgy is part of the decarbonisation path undertaken by the group to strengthen the sustainability and competitiveness of its production units in Spain.
