SEAT is currently working on the Life Methamorphosis project to obtain biomethane from previously selected waste and animal slurry from a farm in Lleida, Spain. The new Life Landfill Biofuel project is a step further as the raw material originates directly from the landfill, without prior separation.
Other project participants include FCC, IVECO, The University of Granada, the CARTIF Foundation, SYSADVANCE and Gasnam. SEAT previously developed a similar project with Aqualia to convert waste water into biofuel.

A portion of the $30 million will be used for a second plant at a location yet to be identified. The NSW government provided $5 million in funding.
The plant will process dry waste such as plastic, dirty paper and cardboard, and non-recyclable wood into small solid material -- processed engineered fuel (PEF) -- that can be burnt for power.
Over the lifetime of the facility, it is forecast to reduce carbon emissions by about 4 million tonnes.

Turning waste into fuel is a water-intensive -- approximately 1.6 million gpd -- process. The proposed Southeast Metro Water Reclamation Facility would treat wastewater and provide the reclaimed water to the Enerkem facility.
The planned Enerkem facility, which could process an estimated 1,000 to 1,500 tpd of garbage, is in the engineering and permitting phase with construction expected to start in 2019 or 2020 for commissioning and startup coming 18 to 24 months later, subject to permitting and approvals.
