Additional investment into biogas operations by PDM
PDM Group, a UK food product manufacturer, has revealed it plans to spend over £90 million (€103.2 million) on anaerobic digestion, recycling and food processing facilities over the next 18 months.
In addition to the £44 million investment into AD facilities in Widnes and Dagenham , PDM will spend just shy of £30 million to upgrade its animal by-product rendering operations and £18 million on three pet food processing facilities.
The plant in Widnes will see the addition of three combined heat and power gas generators to produce electricity, while the heat will be used on-site and by nearby businesses.
The Dagenham operation, due to be built later this year, will distribute biogas to either the gas grid or transportation use.
