Energy

Turning recycled food waste into new and useable products is at the heart of the Emerald Biogas offering.

While most Anaerobic Digestion plants generate electricity, the accompanying heat which is produced is often lost or cannot be transferred and used effectively. However, Emerald Biogas utilises both the power and heat, benefitting the surrounding community.

The plant generates up to 1.56MW of power – enough energy to supply 2,000 homes and Emerald Biogas feeds the power directly into the National Grid. In addition, the heat created as a result of the process is fully utilised by the local industrial and business community. The site for the plant was selected specifically for its proximity to a well-populated industrial park, which could benefit from the heat source.

If you are a local business and would like to learn more about the energy generation and supply from the plant then please contact our dedicated team at
