Cleantech Basque

  • In this Catalogue we are pleased to present the CLEANTECH SOLUTIONS available in the Basque Country; they belong toACLIMA (The Cluster Association of Environmental Industries of the Basque Country) and the Energy Cluster (The Cluster Association of Energy Industries of the Basque Country).

    As far as we are concerned, they are CLEANTECH solutions (also known as Clean Technologies) because they make available products and/or services that create value by using limited or zero non-renewable resources, and by generating significantly less waste than what is offered commercially by conventional technologies.

    They are BASQUE solutions because they include products and/or services offered by companies located in the Basque Country and who are members of ACLIMA and the ENERGY CLUSTER.Both Clusters have a Triple Helix configuration bringing together companies, institutions, academia/research with the aim of promoting competitiveness that is underpinned by sustainability.This competitiveness is achieved through processes that maximize innovation, efficiency and the internationalisation of companies.

    This catalogue has been designed as a practical, living tool to showcase the Cleantech capabilities existing in the Basque Autonomous Community (region), and can be approached through three different strands:

    Value chains (Our Cleantechs)

    We do hope that it will be useful, and we urge more Basque companies to join our catalogue.

Cleantech projects

Desulphurisation in the petro-chemical industry

Atmospheric emissions The Petronor refinery's different desulphurisation units avoid rejecting sulphur oxide emissions into the atmosphere. With residual sulphur, BEFESA Desulphurisation produces sulphuric acid, oleum and energy which it feeds into the grid.

Integral urban regeneration actions in the bay of Pasaia

Brownfields regeneration Integral regeneration of a bay affected by the Port of Pasaje's industrial activity and accelerated, dense and disorderly urban development. The action envisages transferring the port's activity outside the bay, which would free up port land, open up adjoining

Rapid biomass pyrolisis plant

Energy reuse Conic reactor pumping bed pilot reactor plant using various raw materials. Rapid pyrolisis reduces biomass waste and produces raw material to generate bio-oil and biochar, for use in biorefineries or as fuels and a source of high added value
