Arranca el proyecto de investigación industrial ZEPPELIN que, liderado por AQUALIA con CETIM Centro Tecnológico como coordinador de la oficina técnica, buscará soluciones tecnológicas innovadoras, eficientes y circulares de producción y almacenamiento de hidrógeno verde.

The industrial research project ZEPPELIN, led by AQUALIA with CETIM Technolgical Centre as technical office coordinator, will seek innovative, efficient and circular technological solutions for the green hydrogen production and storage.

The ZEPPELIN consortium is formed by 7 other leading companies that cover the entire hydrogen value chain: NATURGY, NORVENTO, PERSEO, REDEXIS, REGANOSA, TECNICAS REUNIDAS and REPSOL.

ZEPPELIN is financed by the Centre for Technological and Industrial Development (CDTI), through the CDTI Missions program, aimed at financing large strategic business R&D initiatives that propose solutions to cross-cutting and strategic challenges for Spanish society.

The workshop took place on Thursday, December 9, at the Centro Sociocultural Xinzo de Ponteareas, in Pontevedra.

LIFE REFOREST aims to mitigate erosion and loss of soil in areas affected by forest fires through an innovative system based on mycothecnosols.

After the workshop, the group visited one of the three experimental plots where the effectiveness of this innovative system is tested, based on a combination of stabilized organic waste inoculated with fungi, and contained in tubular sleeves of biodegradable material.

The LIFE PHOENIX consortium, led by Aqualia and with the participation of CETIM, is made up of 8 partners from Spain, Portugal and the Netherlands. Based on low energy consumption technologies, the aim of the project is to obtain reclaimed water from WWTPs of any size and to achieve qualities that allow reuse with full guarantees. Several demonstration plants integrated in sea containers will tour WWTPs in the Iberian Peninsula to test the viability of the selected technologies.

Wood is, in essence, a circular raw material with an unbeatable degree of sustainability, far above that of other materials. This is an added value with which leading companies in the forestry sector such as FINSA work on a daily basis, promoting it through innovation to obtain new materials from waste; cutting-edge R&D projects in which CETIM collaborates. “Some of our factories can use up to 80% recycled material as raw material” says Javier Portela López, director of R&D and Quality at FINSA.
