SEAT participates in a new European project to generate biomethane from waste

  • The company is going to test the biofuel obtained from municipal landfills in its vehicles
  • The project is scheduled to run until 2023 and will be funded with a total budget of 4.6 million euros

SEAT is going to participate until 2023 in the Life Landfill Biofuel project, which was recently approved by the European Commission, whose goal is to obtain renewable gas from municipal landfills. The aim is to achieve more efficient management by obtaining biomethane from an indigenous, abundant energy source. The project will be developed with other partners for the next four years and has an overall budget of 4.6 million euros, of which the European Commission will fund 55%.


Andrew Shepherd, who is responsible for SEAT’s renewable gas projects, emphasised that “this project will enable us to make headway in the development and research into biomethane as a fuel. Our ultimate aim is to guarantee zero environmental impact for CO2 emissions in the entire life cycle of vehicles.”
