ECOCARBURANTES ESPAÑOLES S.A., has received funds from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to implement the project with file number FN-PGESI-2017-001186 “Project to improve steam boiler performance and increase energy exploitation of exhaust gases from the gas turbine” in the Cartagena Plant (Murcia).

The investments are aimed at improving performance of the main steam boiler and thereby increasing the energy exploitation of exhaust gases from the gas turbine, working with corn as a raw material. The project aims to lower the temperature of the gases as they leave the boiler, and to decrease the flow of natural gas in post-combustion, while maintaining the same steam production. The goal is to reduce the consumption of post-combustion natural gas in the main boiler by 4 MW.

Investment: 818.427,00 €

Funds awarded: 245.528,16 €


BIOCARBURANTES DE CASTILLA Y LEÓN S.A.,
has received funds from the European Regional Development Fund (FEDER) to implement the project with file number FN-PGESI-2017-001375 “Installation project of frequency converters in dryer fans FAN-632 A1 / A2 / B1 and B2 ” at the Babilafuente Plant (Salamanca).

The investments are aimed at reducing the energy consumption of the plant by installing frequency converters in fans FAN-632-A1 / A2 / B1 / B2 of 355 kW each. The saving in energy will mean not only an economic saving but a saving in CO2 emissions to the atmosphere. The investments will contribute an annual saving of 1 ,945 MWh/year or Tep/year 167.26
