Waste not, want not

ECO ENERGY - The story of improving the efficiency of energy plants

The problem
The Government has set ambitious targets to increase the number, capacity and type of renewable energy sources within the UK over the coming years. However, the main focus for investment is on the large scale renewable energy schemes as these provide the economies of scale required to make the plants financially viable. But there is just as much scope to make a serious impact in efficiency, among small scale anaerobic digestion (AD) power production plants.

 

The solution
This highly experienced team set about working to improve the commercial viability of smaller scale operations. They have designed a new system that increases the volume and quality of biogases produced during the AD process. They have not only improved construction efficiency and quality, they have also improved safety and made maintenance easier and more cost effective, even in remote areas.
