Biogas deal secured

Chesterfield BioGas (CBG) has secured a new order for its biogas upgraders which will be a key element of a UK renewable energy project, the Yorkshire Post has reported.

The company is to supply gas-scrubbing water-wash upgraders and ancillary equipment to a site in Scotland.

When commissioned in late 2014, it will be the largest biogas-to-grid project operating in the UK.

Raw biogas - derived from anaerobic digestion (AD) of spent grains from a distilling process - will be converted into biomethane suitable for injection into the national gas grid.

In August, CBG announced two other orders for upgraders in the same model range.

The Widnes site of ReFood UK, part of the PDM group, will handle commercial food waste and the FLI Energy project at Beccles, Suffolk will use energy crops and vegetable wastes.

Together the three projects demonstrate the versatility of the system in processing gas from diverse organic feedstocks.

CBG managing director Stephen McCulloch said: “We believe that the order stream we are now experiencing, with diverse customers in different sectors, validates our outlook that creating a successful and sustainable business requires more than financial acumen. Our company places great importance not only on what we do, but how we do it.”
