The methanation as a means of diversification of energy resources in the agriculture, livestock and agro-industry

The project AGROGAS brings together six partners Spanish, French and Portuguese, and aims to enable the agricultural, agro-industrial and livestock to reduce the environmental impact caused by waste they produce, while improving the efficiency of energy resources in rural areas, in order to reduce their energy dependence. The selected technology to achieve these goals is the methanation.

This project is funded by the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) under the Territorial Cooperation Programme INTERREG IV B space in Southwest Europe (SUDOE). The space SUDOE gathers the Spanish, French, Portuguese and British (Gibraltar) southwest of Europe.

The CVR - Centre for Waste Recovery is single national entity to join the consortium of institutions from three countries, Portugal, Spain and France, and which includes:


- Extremeña Agencia de la Energía (Spain);

- Fundación General de la Universidad de Salamanca (Spain);

- Fundación Fundagro (Spain);

- Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse (France);
