Future Biogas to take part in Red Nose Day 2019
Future Biogas has announced that it will be creating the UK’s ‘biggest’ red nose by lighting up a domed digester tank of a biogas plant at Grange Farm Energy in Spridlington, Lincolnshire.
The plant has a circular main tank that is 38m in diameter and 17m at its highest point and when lit up red, Future Biogas state that it will become the biggest red nose since Red Nose Day began in 1988.
Philipp Lukas, founder and managing director of Future Biogas says: “We pride ourselves on being an ethical company. Not only do we operate at the very forefront of the green energy revolution, we also work in close partnership with the communities in which our plants are located. Their goodwill is of the upmost importance to us.”
“This fun, family event will allow us to welcome our neighbours in Spridlington onto our site – so they can join us in making a difference to people’s lives, both here in the UK and internationally, by raising vital funds for Comic Relief. “
“As well as learning how we make green gas from local crops, I trust they will enjoy pelting myself and my managerial colleagues with digestate – which might look noxious but is entirely harmless!”
“The culmination of the event is going to be a grand switch-on of the UK’s biggest ever Red Nose. We can’t wait to light up the Lincolnshire sky for such a fantastic cause,” added Lukas.
Chris Holmes, co-lead investment adviser at John Laing Environmental Assets Group, which owns the plant, said, “We are delighted that Future Biogas is pulling out all the stops for Red Nose Day 2019.”
“This initiative, while hopefully raising a significant amount of money for Comic Relief, also demonstrates the close links between the company and the local community and I look forward to meeting many of the visitors to the site on the day,” concluded Holmes.
