  • Iberdrola has announced a joint research with Procelanosa to help decarbonize its manufacturing operations
  • They will research use of renewable energy and green hydrogen supply for the fabs and maximum efficiency of its equipment
  • A captive solar PV plant is also part of the discussion as Porcelanosa makes efforts to be aligned with EU objectives

Spain based ceramics producer Porcelanosa is taking Iberdrola’s help to decarbonize its manufacturing production processes including use of renewable energy sources for its operations. The plans include installation of a captive solar PV plant on Porcelanosa’s premises.

The Spanish renewable energy company has agreed with Porcelanosa to conduct joint research into energy solutions at its fabs for high-efficiency heat pumps in dryers, combined use of renewable energy, as well as green hydrogen supply to reach the temperatures required in atomisers and hybrid ovens with maximum efficiency as the end goal.

Porcelanosa believes this would drive the electrification of its production process by improving energy efficiency and making use of residual heat, in line with the objectives as laid down by the European Union (EU) and the fight against climate change.

Iberdrola said it will help develop projects and provide necessary engineering to support the execution of these innovative decarbonization projects ‘which may also be eligible in calls for applications for European, national and regional public grants’.

These partnerships further Iberdrola’s goals to double its renewable energy capacity between 2020 to 2025 with an investment of €75 billion—including reaching 16 GW PV capacity—to become an enabler for industrial sector’s sustainable energy transformation (see Iberdrola Aims For 16 GW Solar Capacity By 2025).
