Biogas injected into the natural gas grid
Parc de l’Alba, which business area is known as Barcelona Synchrotron Park – also includes a future residential neighborhood and different green areas (half of the total surface of the park) with an iconic 1km-wide biologic corridor.

Between 2007 and 2011, an excavation made in one of these green plots as the result of an antic clay extraction activity was used to store waste bales from the Barcelona Metropolitan Area. Since the landfill has been closed, the biogas produced by the decomposition of bales organic material is extracted and burned in order to prevent the emission into the atmosphere.

To take advantage of the methane present in this biogas at a significant 60% concentration, Gas Natural Fenosa Spanish energy company (recently renamed Naturgy), is carrying out a project pioneer in Spain: setting up both an upgrading plant to filter methane and an injection plant to introduce this biomethane into the natural gas grid.

In order to make this project a reality, Cerdanyola del Vallès municipal authorities, on which Parc de l’Alba depends, has recently conceded a plot to Naturgy to build and operate the two plants scheduled to start operating early next year.
