In this sense, NIMBUS will foster a more sustainable transport through circular economy. To do this, the project will use biomethane, a renewable and unlimited fuel generated from sewage sludge and the surplus of renewable energies, as fuel for one bus in Barcelona.
The NIMBUS project is committed to green transport with biomethane as a sustainable fuel to replace fossil fuels in public transport in the city of Barcelona.
The NIMBUS project transforms the current Llobregat WWTP into an ecofactory, a facility that generates valuable resources. NIMBUS is committed to the circular economy by revaluing the waste generated in the treatment plant to produce biogas.
NIMBUS uses Power-to-Gas technologies to transform surplus renewable energy into hydrogen gas for easy storage.
By combining the hydrogen generated with Power-To-Gas technologies and the biogas produced in the ecofactory, biomethane, high-quality renewable gas fuel will be generated. Biomethane can be injected into the natural gas network or used as a fuel for transportation.
