Learn about the opportunities offered by bioenergy for the meat sector

On June 22, an online conference was held between the Bioenergy Cluster of Catalonia (CBC) and INNOVACC, the Catalan meat and alternative protein cluster on the options for “Decarbonisation of the meat sector from bioenergy”.


The session was attended by 45 people linked to the 2 clusters.

Esteve Espuña, president of INNOVACC, welcomed the attendees and recalled that, with the current situation of high energy costs in companies, it could be a good time to consider bioenergy implementations in the meat sector and in all types of companies associated with the cluster .


Marc Cortina, manager of CBC recalled the scope of bioenergy, and the many possibilities it offers.


Toni Campaña from ICAEN explained the planned aid lines, with Fons Next Generation, for the field of industrial decarbonisation.
