GC first 100% renewable biorefinery in Spain

Gran Canaria will host the first 100% renewable biorefinery in Spain.

Biogreenfinery is part of the strategy of the Ministry of Universities, Science and Innovation of the Government of the Canary Islands

The Biogreenfinery experimental platform, the first 100% renewable biorefinery in the Canary Islands, a project promoted by the Technological Institute of the Canary Islands (ITC) and housed in its facilities in Pozo Izquierdo, in Gran Canaria, pursues the impulse of the islands towards the ecological transition in terms of mobility.

Funded by the REACT-EU Fund, within the framework of the European Next Generation EU instrument, this project places the Canary Islands at the forefront in the progress towards the decarbonization of the economy and in the production of hydrogen, from renewable energies, for its subsequent use in the use of synthetic fuels associated with transport or in stationary applications.

It is a unique project in Spain and a reference at European level that represents a leap in level towards the decarbonization of the transport sector.


The project consists of "the installation of a pilot plant for the production of green ammonia using renewable energies in conditions isolated from the electricity supply network". Hydrogen and nitrogen will be produced in the same facilities, from photovoltaic and wind energy, "for later, through the Haber-Bosch technique and with the necessary compression and temperature change processes to reduce work volumes, perform the synthesis of ammonia".

"The ultimate goal of ammonia is to serve as the basis for testing green energy stacks for shipping. Initially, the ITC will test the results of its research in a fuel bus based on green hydrogen," they add from the Autonomous Commission for Environmental Assessment of the Canary Islands.
