100% biogas power for new Birch Solutions offices
The new offices of North Lincolnshire, UK’s Birch Solutions are powered 100% by renewable energy produced from onsite biogas plants, the company has announced.
Founded in 1815, Singleton Birch has since diversified into a number of sectors while keeping the global supply of chalk and lime as its core business. Birch Solutions was formed after Singleton Birch bought a controlling share of green energy company PlanET Biogas UK, a major biogas technology provider.
The new headquarters are situated in a purpose built £600,000 building at Singleton Birch’s Melton Ross site. A new R&D development centre is also located in the new facility.
“Research and development will be a key part of the Birch Solutions business going forward as we continue to offer biogas plant owners a fresh approach to services and consultancy,” said Martin Haworth, director of Birch Solutions.
“This will also complement our work with blue chip water companies which also use the anaerobic digestion process but as a water treatment rather than to produce energy.
“This investment is a sign of our commitment to deliver excellent support to our customers, especially biogas plant owners who are looking to get the best out of their systems.”
Local contractors, including Britcon, Manta, John Maw, Whites Electrical and Ventair were all involved in the construction of the new buildings. The project was managed by a Birch Solutions team.
The new centre was opened by Jonathan Kay, who has family links to William Singleton Birch, the founder of Singleton Birch.
