Shropshire Energy completes new AD plant
A new anaerobic digestion plant has been built at Shropshire Energy's site in Ely, UK.
UTS Biogas, a wholly owned subsidiary of Anaergia, built the large-scale 2.4MW renewable plant which will deliver green heat and electricity for facility operations.
The AD system will utilise 20,000 tonnes a year of vegetable waste and 36,500 tonnes of maize silage to produce almost 20,000MWh of renewable electricity and 22,000MWh of renewable heat annually. A surplus 8,700MWh of power will be sent to grid.
Will Forbes, director of Shropshire Energy, describes the facility as 'a model of closed loop sustainability'.
