Hive Energy, DBG Group to develop biogas project
This partnership marks UK-based Hive’s latest progression in its mission to create transformational change for a cleaner future through partnering with circular economy companies.
In the first waste-to-energy project of the partnership, the companies will process 270,000 tonnes per annum of industrial waste into 4,500 Nm3 per hour of biogas and 150,000 tonnes per annum of fertiliser at its site in the Netherlands.
“Hive Energy is determined to drive transformational change to prevent climate change,” said Hive Energy CEO, Giles Redpath.
“I am delighted to be partnering with the DBG Group as they have an exciting, achievable and ambitious plan, which will prevent an industrial waste stream from being incinerated, and instead process it to produce organic fertilisers and green biogas – two important commodities that the world needs as it moves to carbon net-zero.”
Berkay Güres, CEO of DBG Group, added: “I am very excited about the partnership. Hive Energy is the ideal partner for us. We both want to build strong and effective circular economy activities that will reduce climate change, and build a greener future for all.
“We have a strong team and a strong plan, processing a problematic waste stream, which is expensive to dispose of, into two valuable commodities. We hope that our first site is the first of many.”
Hive Energy was founded in 2010 by Redpath to participate in the expansion of solar PV in the UK. Since then, the firm has established itself as one of the largest solar developers in the UK, responsible for installing more than 300 MW of generating capacity across the country.
