Biogas plant with gas upgrading facility comes online in UK
A biogas plant complete with gas upgrading facility has been installed for Icknield Gas in Oxfordshire, UK.
Construction began in June 2014 and was complete in six months; since 12 December Icknield Gas has been feeding green energy into the existing Southern Gas Networks grid.
Using a combination of pig slurry, farm by-products and energy crops, the facility is able to deliver an annual energy value of around 35 million kWh of biomethane.
'Our new plant currently enables us to deliver enough gas for the annual needs of about 2,150 homes,' says project developer David Bermingham.
The facility was supplied by EnviTec Biogas and is the company's first biogas plant with a gas upgrading facility to be installed in the UK.
