Bio Capital acquires Linwood transfer station in Scotland

news item image
Bio Capital Group, a UK commercial energy-from-food-waste producer, has added a fourth asset to its portfolio in Scotland.
The company works with partners such as local authorities, food manufacturers and retail chains to reduce their carbon emissions by diverting their food waste from landfill and transforming it into biogas and electricity.
The newly acquired Linwood food waste transfer station will significantly improve Bio Capital’s ability to process feedstock for its regional anaerobic digestion (AD) facilities, according to the organisation.
Located in Paisley, Scotland, the Linwood site has been acquired from Keenan (Recycling) Limited and has the licensed capability to process 13,200 tonnes of food waste per annum.
The site will divert food waste from landfill and provide a feedstock for Bio Capital’s Barkip and Energen AD sites.
Transfer stations process feedstock, enabling continual supply to the AD sites, which in turn allows for the stable production of biogas, or further processed to biomethane which can be directly injected into the local gas grid.
The Linwood transfer station facility has the capability to divert 13,200 tonnes of food waste from landfill per annum equating to a CO2 saving of 11,554 tonnes, said the company.
This is the CO2 savings equivalent of taking over 6,800 cars off the roads for a year.
Linwood is strategically located 8 miles from Barkip and 27 miles from Energen, making low mileage transfers possible, reducing the cost and emissions of transportation and further improving the efficiency of the AD process.
Bio Capital’s general manager, George O’Malley, said: “This transfer station is an important acquisition to the Bio Capital group, securing local feedstock, and gives us an opportunity to expand our tonnage portfolio.
"Bio Capital continues to acquire strategic sites and develop working partnerships with key stakeholders, this is yet another exciting move, both for the company, as well as for Scotland and the UK’s net-zero ambitions”.
