It is that perfect time of year for starting outdoor projects with significant groundworks. By starting now, you get the best chance of “making hay while the sun shines”, and using the best of the UK’s (and northern hemisphere) spring and summer weather which can help greatly in keeping construction costs under control, and to programme.
Anaerobic Digestion of Solid Waste
60,000 TPA Anaerobic Digestion Biogas Plant Approved in Yorkshire
“The Manchester, UK based waste treatment infrastructure developer said that consent for its North Selby Anaerobic Digestion and Horticultural Glasshouse facility, which will be located on the former North Selby Mine site, was granted by the City of …”
Imtech Announces New Tamesis AD Plant Award from Thames Water
Imtech, as part of the Tamesis team – a joint venture between Laing O’Rourke and Imtech Water, Waste & Energy – has been awarded a £75 million contract by Thames Water to develop two Advanced Digestion AD schemes at Crossness and Beckton in London. By sustainably treating and enhancing sewage sludge – a process known as advanced anaerobic digestion – it is possible to convert sewage sludge into sustainable energy in biogas power plants. This contributes to both the environmental and financial performance.
Then there is the go ahead for new anaerobic digestion facilties for North Selby area:

New Work Has Also Been Announced on Biogas CHP Plants in the US
“After seven years of planning, Vermont Technical College has broken ground on an anaerobic digestion project that will generate heat for the campus, and power that will be sold to the grid. Permitting for the Central Vermont Recovered Biomass Facility, …Biomass Magazine”
Next time we will hope to see more farm based AD Plant starts. For whatever reason there seems to be a lack of those to report at present.
