New biogas facility aids renewable power in UK
Global technology provider Clarke Energy has assisted waste management business Agrivert to produce renewable energy in Oxfordshire, UK.
Agrivert’s anaerobic digestion facility in Wallingford, Oxfordshire processes food waste collected from Oxfordshire County Council and other local sources to produce biogas used in a CHP plant, achieving fuel efficiency in excess of 84%.
The anaerobic digestion facility is built to treat 45,000 tonnes of feedstock per year to create enough renewable electricity to power 6,000 average UK homes. Its engines are capable of producing a combined energy output of 4.7MW, split between 2.4MW electricity and 2.3MW heat.
