Waga Reports Spanish, Canadian Landfill Biomethane Projects (Int'l)
Waga Energy
Date: 2021-06-18
Meylan, France-headquartered Waga Energy reports it has been selected by Ferrovial Servicios to produce biomethane at the Can Mata landfill, one of Spain's largest landfill, near Barcelona. The WAGABOX® unit to be installed will treat up to 2,200 m3/h of landfill gas and inject 70 GWh of biomethane per year into the gas network of the Spanish operator Nedgia, The waste stored in Can Mata generates nearly 40 million cubic meters per year of biogas

The project is the first ever landfill gas injection project to be financed by a long-term power purchase agreement in Europe. The facility, which will avoid 17,000 tpy of CO2 by substituting renewable natural gas (RNG) for natural gas, is expected to be commissioned in 2022.

As previously reported in April, , Waga Energy contracted with Brome-Missiquoi Intermunicipal Waste Management Board (RIGMRBM) in Quebec to construct a WAGABOX® purification unit at Cowansville landfill to produce biomethane (RNG). The project is the company's second contract in Canada and is expected to commissioned early in 2023.

Waga Energy will finance the construction of the unit and the connection of the installation to the gas network, operate and maintain the unit as well as purchase the RNG produced on-site for 20 years then sell the gas to a Canadian energy company. Cowansville landfill treats 75,000 tpy of waste from which the WAGABOX unit will produce 30 GWh of biomethane per year and supply 1,750 Quebec households with RNG, and avoid 5,000 tpy of CO2 emissions.

Waga Energy presently operates 10 WAGABOX units in France, representing a production capacity of 225 GWh per year of biomethane and has 6 units under construction. (Source: Waga Energy, PR, Website, June, 2021) Contact: Waga Energy, Mathieu Lefebrve, CEO, www.waga-energy.com
