Spain to invest in green hydrogen production at former biodiesel plant

August 12, 2021 |

In Spain, the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge (MITECO) has selected 79 innovative renewable energy projects in productive sectors to receive aid for more than 76 million euros. One of the projects selected includes the production of green hydrogen from renewable generation, which will be used to transform an old biodiesel plant in Valdetorres (Badajoz) into one for the production of synthetic fuels (e-fuel).

It is a unique and innovative project at European level that has a photovoltaic power of 4.5 MW and electrolysis of 1.25 MW, and whose main attraction is that the hydrogen necessary for the generation of these fuels will be produced by electrolysis from a photovoltaic installation. In addition, the energy that is not consumed in the process will be used to cover the electrical consumption of the plant.
