Norvento participates in the R&D Project VARAL.

Norvento takes part in the R&D Project VARAL (Comprehensive Valorisation of Derivates and Effluent from the Dairy Sector). The main aim of the project is to develop technologies to valorise the derivates and effluent from the dairy industry and obtain added value products, irrigation or process water and biogas for self-consumption. Moreover, it aims to find a solution to some of the environmental problems of the dairy sector, thanks to the sustainable management of their effluents.

The project will be carried out by a consortium made up of five Galician SMEs: Glaucor Ingeniería, head of the project; Norvento Enerxía, expert in anaerobic digestion and biogas production; Dairylac, with wide knowledge on whey valorisation; Indutec, with large experience in environmental management and Prestes Quesería will lend its installations to build a pilot plant and validate the use of these technologies in the industry. Furthermore, the technological centre AIMEN, with huge experience in R&D, will collaborate in the project.

The project forms part of CONECTAPEME 2018, it is financed by Xunta de Galicia through the Consellería de Economía, Emprego e Industria and is co-financed by FEDER in the first operational programme Feder Galicia 2014-2020. More information
