Biomethane from brewery waste injected into grid

At the Adnams Brewery in Southwold, UK, Adnams Bio Energy, British Gas and National Grid have delivered the UK’s first biomethane produced from brewery waste and local food waste to the gas grid.

The project will generate up to 4.8kWh annually, benefitting around 235 homes a year, or enough to power a family sized car for 4 million miles.

It is hoped that the project will eventually produce enough gas to power the brewery’s fleet of lorries in addition to injecting the remaining 60% into the grid.

Adnams also provides an outlet for local food waste from both Waitrose and John Lewis, significantly reducing waste sent to landfill.
