LIFE Nimbus

LIFE Nimbus is a European project that aims to use biomethane produced from sewage sludge as a sustainable fuel. It was launched in 2020 with the aim of proposing a green energy and transport model in Barcelona by promoting the concept of the eco-factory or bio-factory.

By recycling sewage sludge from the Baix Llobregat wastewater treatment plant operated by Aigües de Barcelona, biomethane of sufficient quality will be produced to be used as a biofuel for public transport. At the same time, power-to-gas technology will be promoted as a solution for storing surplus renewable energy.
