Málaga, Spain (PortSEurope) November 26, 2020 – Buran Energy is now managing Oil Distribution Terminals in the port of Málaga and will start a project to introduce hydrogen as an energy source and exploit the use of biofuels. The objective is to improve the energy efficiency of the company’s terminal using hydrogen as an energy vector, through artificial intelligence that optimizes the constant purchase and
sale of renewable energy, as well as the production, storage and supply of green hydrogen. Busan Energy also aims to produce fuels for the port’s transport vehicles. The project is part of the organization’s plans to develop various lines that provide small industry and fuel supply centers with efficient solutions based on green hydrogen and thus contribute to the decarbonisation objectives set in the 2030 and 2050 Horizon . The company’s plans focus on biofuels and their different raw materials, which also require attracting new traffic to the port. This week, the terminal unloaded 5.4 tons of used cooking oil, destined for conversion into biodiesel. Electrical energy will come from renewable sources such as wind or photovoltaic, so that both production and consumption are carbon neutral with regard to the climate since no polluting gases are emitted in these processes. Thus, according to the hydrogen roadmap, published in October this year by the Ministerio de Transición Ecológica y el Reto Demográfico, it is estimated that by 2030 green hydrogen will contribute at least 25% of the total hydrogen consumed in the industry. In addition to the objective of optimizing the energy efficiency of its own facilities, the project promoted by Buran Energy focuses on the simultaneous supply of green hydrogen and electricity through an on-site hydrogeneration for final use in land and maritime vehicles.
