May 13 (Renewables Now) - Spanish gas grid operator Enagas SA (BME:ENG) announced on Thursday that the partnership between its renewable gases subsidiary and two other companies developed a bio-methane production project in Andalusia, southern Spain.

Enagas Renovable teamed up with energy engineering Genia Global Energy, and waste management company Grupo Valora to build facilities capable of processing 140,000 tonnes per year of waste such as pig slurry, food scraps, olive mill wastes, and convert them to around 60 GWh of bio-methane.

The facilities would be located in the municipality of Jabalquinto, Jaen province.

The proposal for the Jabalquinto plant comes on top of a plan for three other projects that the trio would develop in Andalusia with a view to produce around 200 GWh of bio-methane per year, Enagas said.
