The team of researchers from the ALGAECAN project visited the demonstration plant of the European All-gas project, inaugurated this week in Chiclana de la Frontera (Cádiz). This plant is the result of seven years of work from this project that has demonstrated that large-scale sustainable production of biofuels based on low-cost microalgae crops using municipal wastewater as raw material is possible.
The All-gas project is considered the largest project in the world to obtain biofuel from the cultivation of microalgae in wastewater. The results of all phases of the project have shown that All-gas is a clear example of a circular economy, since a waste (waste water) is transformed into sustainable raw materials with added value, in this case, biogas.
The opening ceremony was attended by the European Commissioner for Climate and Energy Action, the Spaniard Miguel Arias Cañete.
