Ferrovial tests Repsol biofuels to generate clean electricity

Date: May 29, 2024 Time: 20:04:59

Ferrovial launches to test renewable fuels. The multinational company that operates in the infrastructure sector has decided to launch a pilot project to test the use of this type of advanced biofuels in generator sets, specifically for the construction of the accesses to the new neighborhood in the southeast of Madrid, Los Berrocales. The company has announced that it continued to use HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) advanced biofuels, a substance produced from used cooking vegetable oils, which replaces conventional diesel.

The HVO, provided by Repsol, will be used by the company to produce electricity through a generator during the first six months of this initiative, as reported by the company in a statement. Advanced biofuel has the advantage of being used in various types of machinery, both mobile and stationary, being able to replace fossil fuels by being produced from raw materials of renewable origin, which means zero net emissions.

This is due to the fact that the CO2 released during its use is equal to the CO2 that has previously been captured from the atmosphere thanks to the vegetable origin of its raw material, so that by reusing organic waste it is avoided that it ends up deposited in landfills.

For this reason, Ferrovial defends that HVO is an effective solution to reduce net emissions, especially in sectors, territories and situations where the electrification of processes is not viable in the short or medium term.

This action is aligned with the commitments that Ferrovial includes in its climate strategy, such as reducing CO2 emissions by 35.3% by 2030 in its direct activities.

In this same direction, Ferrovial has verified that it is working with its experts in innovation, sustainability, the environment and machinery park to identify new solutions that help the company meet these objectives to continue decarbonizing its activity.
