Chile will propose raising the global goal for the use of renewable energy to 40% by 2030

Hidronor apoya a empresas de energias renovables con gestion de residuos industriales

In order to continue advancing in the bill that promotes the participation of non-conventional renewable energies (ERNC) in the national energy matrix, an initiative was recently presented to Congress that seeks to expand the share of electricity generation with ERNC to the year 2030 , from the current 20% to 40% as a global goal, and 30% for each hourly block.

This bill also proposes incentives for distributed generation, changing the installed capacity limit to the injection limit for this type of project, raising it from 300 kW to 500 kW, which will allow the development of larger projects, with an important focus on the self-consumption, encouraging the increased penetration of distributed generation.

At Hidronor we are aware of the benefit that this regulation will bring to our country, and as facilitators in the process of the circular economy value chain we contribute with our services to the correct management of industrial waste that NCRE plants generate, revaluing some of it, such as residual oils to produce alternative fuel that is later used by other industries (such as cement), and used batteries, which can be used to manufacture new units or their materials can be used as raw material for other processes, reinserting them in the production and consumption chain, which contributes to the circular economy.

Likewise, we also offer the possibility of doing industrial washing of the containers used in the production processes of these plants so that they can be reused up to six times before being disposed of safely, thereby contributing to the reduction of the material that ultimately ends up in security deposits.

However, we also contribute to the ultimate goal of increasing the use of renewable energy by injecting more than 6,000,000 kWh of clean energy into the distribution system with our biogas plant, located in the Biobío region, which is possible thanks to to the decomposition of organic waste present in the solid urban waste that we manage, with which we contribute to the reduction of odors and reduce the emission of greenhouse gases.

Do you want to know how we do it? We invite you to check the interview made to our Sales and Marketing manager, Juan Andrés Salamanca, where he explains this process in detail.

Let's continue building a more sustainable country together!
