In the project LIFE WASTE2BIOFUEL five entities participate that contribute their experience and technology to the good development of it: TETma, Cetenma, Greene, KTH and the Diputación de Castellón.
TETma is a Company that belongs to OBINESA Holding Group of Companies. Within this holding, TETma is in charge of the Environment Business Area. TETma’s activities are mainly focus on the Integral Management of the Waste Recycling cycle, going from the initial waste collection at the different sources to the treatment and recovery in our state-of-the-art plants.
In reference to the Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) management, Algimia Waste Treatment Plant, location of the implementation actions (Actions B), is nowadays a reference in Spain in the management of this kind of facilities, with an overall treatment capacity of 200,000 tons serving 56 municipalities. Since the beginning of its operation in 2011 up to the present, the use of high-tech equipment and the continuous improvement of the implemented processes, have led it to be the most efficient waste treatment facility in the Valencian Community.

The Provincial Council of Castellón is the institutional body of the Province of Castellón, which encompasses the 136 municipalities that make up this province. It is responsible for providing various services to citizens and to encourage collaboration between municipalities.
Its environmental department manages the collection and transport of MSW of certain municipalities, they also manages separate collection of paper, batteries, special residues… Furthermore they participate in the environmental preservation of provincial natural environment, and support renewable energy and energy efficiency through environmental education, technical conferences and their participation in European initiatives. Projects participated or headed by the Provincial Council of Castellón have a unifying nature between provinces, and a multiplier effect among municipalities.
Greene Waste to Energy is a Spanish company that develops its activity in the environmental and the renewable energies sector. We design, manufacture, and install plants of gasification for the elimination of organic residues (solid urban residues, coal, industrial not dangerous residue, animal waste and poultry droppings, mud proceeding from plants of water purification, plastic and rubbers) and biomass, and its later energetic valuation (electrical and thermal).
We have our own patented technology of gasification, which is the result of more than ten years of research and development. We have developed a few modular plants of gasification, of 2MW capacity, with rotating horizontal oven and the possibility of processing very heterogeneous residues.
KUNGLIGA TEKNISKA HOEGKOLAN KTH was founded in 1827. KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world dedicated to advancing knowledge.
The research at the Division of Chemical Technology at KTH is focused on chemical conversion of energy and matter. The two main research themes are catalysis and thermo-chemical conversion of biomass. The head of the division with about 25 employees is Prof. Lars J. Pettersson, who has experience in chemical processing, fuel upgrading and catalysis for automotive applications.
The catalysis group with Ass. Prof. Magali Boutonnet and Prof. em. Sven Järås, have many year experience, from both industry and university, in the preparation and characterisation of catalysts (including zeolites and transition metal based catalysts) and catalytic processes. This group is collaborating with many industries in Sweden and Europe and has been involved in more than fifteen European projects.
