Ence's renewable energy generation plant in Puertollano (Ciudad Real), Biollano, has recently completed the audit process of the Sure verification scheme, which guarantees the sustainability of the generation process from sustainable biomass sources, which are also evaluated, as reported by Europa Press. Specifically, it is about consistent proximity biomass, mainly plant debris from crops such as vines or olive trees, fruit trees, and remains of pruning from surrounding parks and gardens. Ence has a total generation capacity of 266 megawatts (MW) in its independent power plants, to which are added 112 MW from its cellulose biofactories.
Ceganor has been the entity responsible for auditing the process, since it is the only Spanish company recognized and authorized by the Sure scheme to perform this service. Thus, Ence's biofactories in Pontevedra and Navia and the company's biomass power generation plants in Huelva, Mérida, Jaén and Ciudad Real, have previously obtained this recognition, making the company -informa Europa Press- "the first company in Europe "to start verifying the sustainability of its biomass energy production process using this standard.
In addition, the company has begun to deploy an Advisory and Collaboration Plan with all the suppliers of the Puertollano plant, with the aim of ensuring that all agricultural, forestry and industrial biomass that supply the plants acquire this certification. To do this, work is already underway to launch the training, implementation and certification tasks of the entire chain of collaborators.
