The COSIN project: synthetic natural gas production from biogas in a waste water treatment plant in Barcelona

Jordi Guilera

Catalonia Institute for Energy Research (IREC)

Jordi Guilera studied Chemical and Environmental Engineering at the University of Barcelona. He received his PhD degree on heterogeneous catalysis in 2013. Then, he joined at the Catalonia Institute for Energy Research as postdoctoral researcher on Power to Gas. In 2015, he worked as University Lecturer in Ecuador, where his research was focused on anaerobic digesters for biogas production. He returned back to IREC as Project Engineer. His work is now focused on CO2 methanation at demo scale.


The CoSin project is an industrial action aiming to demonstrate the technical economic viability of synthetic natural gas production at a sewage treatment plant in Barcelona area. In contrast with current fossil natural gas,... [ view full abstract ]
