The Magnon plant in Lucena receives the “Zero Waste” certificate from AENOR

Magnon Green Energy’s biomass renewable energy generation plant in Lucena has received the “Zero Waste” environmental certificate awarded by AENOR to those organizations that carry out efficient management of their waste and are capable of revaluing it.

The AENOR Zero Waste certificate certifies that the plant values ​​more than 90% of its waste, preventing it from going to landfill, and supports its commitment to the circular economy model, as it promotes proper waste management through the responsible, efficient and sustainable use of resources.

Magnon Lucena, through reuse, recycling and recovery, reintroduces plant remains from agricultural activity into the value chain, giving them a new life and turning them into a fuel of natural and renewable origin. In addition, this energy replaces other fossil energy sources, becoming an essential ally to achieve energy independence and face the climate crisis, reducing the carbon footprint.
The energy generated from biomass is the only renewable that can be managed, since it does not depend on meteorological factors, which allows it to provide the stability that the electrical mix needs in its journey towards energy independence. Biomass power generation can be planned in the short, medium and long term, and is capable of adapting in real time to the needs of the electricity system.

With the Zero Waste certificate of the Lucena plant, it joins the rest of the power generation facilities, located in Jaén, Mérida and Ciudad Real; recognition treasured by a small group of companies in Spain.

This center generates renewable energy from the surrounding agricultural biomass, mainly the orujillo from the olive groves of Cordoba. The generation of energy with biomass is not only a paradigm of the circular economy, but also avoids the mismanagement of agroforestry remains, which leads to their abandonment in natural spaces and, on numerous occasions, an uncontrolled burning of the same. , with serious environmental consequences. Good management of these remains protects the mountains and crop fields.
