Repsol (Madrid / Spain; www.repsol.com) will join technology group Enerkem (Montreal, Québec / Canada; www.enerkem.com) and waste management company Agbar (Barcelona / Spain; www.agbar.es) in the “Ecoplanta” project to build a waste-to-chemicals plant in Tarragona / Spain. The plant will process around 400,000 t of non-recyclable municipal solid waste from its surrounding regions and produce 220,000 t/y of methanol. This methanol will be used as raw material to produce circular materials or advanced biofuels.

Repsol has a petrochemical complex in Tarragona, a factor that will allow for synergies among the facilities. The company aims to recycle 20% of all its polyolefins’ production by 2030. The plant is expected to be operational in 2025 after taking the project’s final investment decision by the first quarter of 2022. It will use Enerkem’s gasification technology.
