The circular economy is advancing in Spain, and EFE AGRO includes the projects developed in the agri-food sector that are aimed at waste revaluation. Since this sector does not want to be left behind in the race to lead the circular economy, this is a “win to win” concept, in which everything, even the smallest waste from crops or industry, can have added value that contributes to economic, environmental, and social sustainability.

Genia Global Energy has signed an agreement with the Spanish Kaki Association association that brings together 45 exporters with their own production, presided by Pascual Prats (aekaki.es) to produce biogas with about 18,000 tons of fruit waste per campaign. This alternative avoids the cost of eliminating discarded fruit.

“Lighting’s main asset when playing a determining role lies in its elevated position and distribution throughout the entire area of buildings and industrial units. This position then allows the location of smart sensors capable of taking real-time data on factors directly related to lighting to improve its use and efficiency, such as occupation, light intensity or other aspects that help improve business management in real time, such as monitoring facilities and processes to detect needs for preventive maintenance in terms of machinery or traffic in the different available spaces, to avoid bottlenecks and even accidents.”

A project commissioned by Naturgy, through Nedgia, in which we are the engineering company responsible for studying the feasibility of producing renewable gas from rice straw. In addition to recovering energy from rice straw, this initiative would help to solve the environmental problem generated by rice crop waste, which would be applicable in other rice-producing areas such as Andalusia or the Ebro Delta.
Its high silica content prevents it from being used for animal feed. In addition, it has a lot of fiber and cellulose, making it difficult to cut and process before sending it the digester of the biogas plant just like any other vegetable.

The Commonwealth of Municipalities is studying a proposal to convert organic solid waste into energy. Representatives from Cangas, Moaña and Bueu met with Genia Energy, to conduct a technical and feasibility study for a biogas plant in the A Portela complex.
“Converting organic matter and the waste fraction of municipal solid waste is economically profitable and gives the environment a break. It is the starting point on which the Genia Global Energy company is based.”
[November 2018] – Article published in Levante EMV
“The Valencian company Genia Global Energy, specialised in the development of renewable energy solutions, has patented a small biogas plant that transforms waste from industries and farms, converting them into electricity and gas. The plants are assembled in twenty or forty-feet tanks (between 6 and 12 meters long) and reproduce the operation of large biogas plants (occupying 10,000 square meters) on a small scale The first plant sold the smoke to a cow farm owned by the largest milk producer in Palestine. The Palestinian plant runs on cattle manure and straw and green waste. Genia’s plants (a technology with the trade name of Small Biogas Technology) allow their owners to reduce their electricity bill by 69,000 euros a year AND the gas bill by 10,000 euros, according to the company’s founder Gabriel Butler. Genia Global, based in Valencia, invoices more than one million euros a year and employs 21 people.
Biogas is a mixture of different gases produced by the degradation of organic matter in the absence of oxygen. Genia’s mini plants are equipped with a tank (digester) in which the fermentation takes place, generated from materials such as urban waste, rejects from the agri-food industry or sludge. Factories and farms can use the biogas from the mini-plant in an engine to generate electricity or in a boiler to produce heat. In addition, after fermentation, a liquid is generated that can be used as fertiliser. Butler said, “With the technology we developed, we are able to help factories and farms dispose of the waste they generate without having to pay, and to produce energy for their own consumption. Our plants cost around 550,000 euros and pay for themselves in 3-6 years,”. Genia manages the installation of 65 plants of this type. “Our potential customers are brewers, juice and canning plants, bread factories, slaughterhouses, dairy companies and treatment plants that generate a large amount of sludge. Our technology has been approved and banks are interested in financing the plants. We also have an agreement with an energy company, which facilitates the installation”, he pointed out.
