Biogas in Spain: a pending challenge

Renewable gases are those obtained from raw materials or renewable sources, including biogas generated in anaerobic digestion processes, which is used for the generation of electrical and thermal energy, as well as being able to be transformed into natural gas and be injected into the network. There are currently more than 500 facilities in Europe Read more about Biogas in Spain: a pending challenge[…]

Presentation of the microalgae school project during the CONICYT Explora Program

This week the presentation of the work carried out by the students of the ‘Carmen Bajo’ (Melipilla) school took place within the framework of the CONICYT Explora Program, at the provincial level, which turned out to be exceptional. Although they did not move on to the next stage of the Regional School Congress of Science Read more about Presentation of the microalgae school project during the CONICYT Explora Program[…]

ProCycla collaborates as scientific advisors to future researchers

As part of the Science Protagonists initiative, students from Carmen Bajo School have completed research internships at our ProCycla facilities in the ‘El Junco’ estate. Between the months of June and August, our collaborators have participated as scientific advisors in this experience, guiding students in two areas of research. The first studied photosynthesis in microalgae, Read more about ProCycla collaborates as scientific advisors to future researchers[…]

ProCycla develops technology to treat livestock waste

Livestock farms generate a large amount of slurry and manure whose management, in addition to complicated, represents an important cost for the owners. ProCycla has researched and developed a low-cost modular technology for the treatment of this type of waste, optimizing the generation of biogas through anaerobic digestion processThe reactor, with a modified piston flow Read more about ProCycla develops technology to treat livestock waste[…]

New biogas plant collaboration project

ProCycla S.L. and the cattle farm Cal Pones, in Cardona (Barcelona), have initiated a joint collaboration project to install a biogas plant that will treat the organic waste generated in it. The exploitation will benefit from the thermal and electrical energy generated with the biogas, in addition to a subsequent nitrification-denitrification process, producing a clean, Read more about New biogas plant collaboration project[…]

Energy and digitalization: from centralization to distribution

The digital transformation of energy systems is now a rapidly growing reality. The intensive application of information and communication technologies to energy systems is a trend that allows for increasing advances in the collection of large volumes of data, thanks to the reduction of costs in the sensors and their storage, in their analysis (machine Read more about Energy and digitalization: from centralization to distribution[…]

Towards new sustainable models: the circular economy

The circular economy is the paradigm shift that has to be empowered by humanity to create a sustainable economy in accordance with the environment and to bring benefits to industry and society. The circular economy relies on “reuse–recycling–reduction” rather than “produce-use-pull”. In ProCycla we are committed to replacing the current consumer economy towards a sustainable Read more about Towards new sustainable models: the circular economy[…]
