PlanET delivers biogas plant to UK company
UK lime works company Singleton Birch has opened its 1.5MW biogas plant in North Lincolnshire, England.
The new plant will generate 40% of Singleton Birch's power requirements, with four local farmers providing 30,000 tonnes of feedstock annually. This includes manure, slurry, maize and sugar beet, as well as grass from the Humberside Airport.
PlanET Biogas UK was responsible for constructing the plant, which features a 96m3 PlanET Vario feeder, the gas storage system PlanET Flexstore, and raw biogas desulphurisation with the PlanET eco cover.
'For the Humber region, this AD plant is a unique project in terms of energy management, which sustainably ensures economic efficiency and a competitive operation of our energy consuming lime business,' says Martin Haworth, technical director at Singleton Birch.
The new plant will help the company reduce its energy costs and reduce CO2 emissions.
