Less waste and lower
greenhouse gas emissions

MORE INFORMATION

We have replaced our old fuel oil boilers with biomass boilers. We have also managed to generate 10% of the energy we consume by using pig fur as fuel, which has substantially reduced the amount of waste of this by-product. In 2020, we plan to install a methanization plant to process waste produced by our industry.

Queremos un futuro sostenible, por eso apostamos seriosamente en la reutilización de la energía generada, hecho que nos permite reducir substancialmente el gasto energético.

2019

Grup d’Avinyó installed the first industrial plant for the PigHeat project, together with the R&D&I department at Bigas Alsina, SA. This pioneering project mixes pig hair from our abattoir with woodchips to create a biofuel, thus cutting down on waste and generating part of the electricity used at the abattoir.

We installed a pilot biomethanation plant at the company to test the lab results under more realistic conditions, a key step in moving from the laboratory to the industrial stage.

2014

Grup d’Avinyó began laboratory tests to implement a biomethanation process to produce biogas from the company’s organic waste as part of a collaborative project with AINIA technology centre and Frontera Técnica. During this first stage, organic waste samples were tested to check their effectiveness at producing biogas through anaerobic digestion.

We received a grant from the Catalan Energy Institute to install a means of heat recovery inside our heat production system in order to save energy by making use of the heat generated by burning unwanted animal hair.
