This week the mayoress of Alcudia presented the Alcudia Tech Mar project to the president of Felib, Antoni Salas, and the mayors of Sa Pobla, Pollença and Muro. This is a strategic project for the transformation of the island’s production model that focuses on the decarbonisation of the sea.
Decarbonisation is the process of reducing carbon emissions, especially carbon dioxide (CO2), into the atmosphere. It aims to achieve a low-emissions global economy that achieves climate neutrality through the energy transition.
The project will be located in the Alcanada power plant and is intended to house an international centre of reference in the Mediterranean, including a United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), a Nautical Engineering Centre.
The sustainable economy and the decarbonisation of the sea will be key to mitigating climate change.
It will affect all sectors and will focus on self-consumption, promoting local agriculture, recreational boats will be electrified, tourism will be guided towards decarbonisation and social synergies will be created between large corporations and the most local economies.
