This new process has been situated in Vila-sana (Lérida, SPAIN), where the main local activities are agriculture and farming. The initial project aim was to turn a problem such as manure into a market opportunity, the biogas. Different alternatives projects were studied until the project was launched. The ECOBIOGAS plant has three main lines of working:
1. The reception area, where the manure and the external organic residues are received. The plant was installed in a pig farmer. The success of the plant is thanks to the mix of manure and organic waste.
2. The digestion area, where there are two digesters and a manure sump, where the anaerobic digestion took place.
3. Third, the cogeneration area, with the engine, control place, evacuation of the electricity and thermal energy distribution.
