Ecoplanta Molecular Recycling Solutions S.L. is the result of the alliance between Agbar, Enerkem and Repsol, three leading circular economy and sustainability companies. This joint venture guarantees the implementation of the project and compliance with the most demanding standards so that this option may become a model of environmental, economic and social sustainability.
Agbar is a company dedicated to water and waste management, which has established itself as a benchmark in the preservation of natural resources. After more than 150 years of experience, and currently active in Spain and Latin America, the company continues to innovate to respond to the needs of the environment, with the aim of improving people’s quality of life.
Through partnerships with administrations, businesses and citizens, Agbar promotes ecological transition by promoting circular economy models -with references such as bio-factories, a result of the evolution of traditional treatment plants to reuse water, revalue waste and promote energy self-sufficiency- to combat the climate emergency and develop more resilient territories.
Enerkem has developed and commercializes a disruptive technology for the production of advanced biofuels and renewable chemicals from non-recyclable waste. Headquartered in Montreal (Québec, Canada), Enerkem operates a large-scale commercial demonstration facility in Edmonton (Alberta, Canada), as well as an innovation center in Québec. A large-scale commercial facility is currently under construction in Varennes (Québec, Canada).
Enerkem’s technology is an excellent example of how a true circular economy can be achieved by diversifying the energy mix and making everyday products greener, while offering an intelligent and sustainable alternative to landfill and incineration.
Repsol is a global multi-energy company, present throughout the energy value chain, employing 24,000 people worldwide and distributing its products in nearly 100 countries.
Repsol leads the energy transition with its ambition to achieve zero net emissions by 2050, deploying an integrated model of decarbonization technologies based on: improving efficiency, increasing low-emission power generation capacity, the production of low-carbon fuels, the development of new customer solutions, the circular economy and driving innovative projects to reduce the carbon footprint of the industry.
Repsol’s chemistry, with products ranging from basic petrochemicals to derivatives, aims to recycle the equivalent of 20% of its polyolefin production by 2030.
