Considerations When Building Steel Retaining Walls at Biogas Plants

Consideration of building steel retaining walls as more biogas plants are built is becoming important. Space can be very limited, especially when AD plant owners decide to add additional digester tanks to existing tank farms. Using a retaining wall is often the only way in which AD plants can be squeezed onto the only available […]

EU Green Lending Criteria – Surprise Crop-based Biofuels Omission

As EU Green Lending criteria are increasingly being defined an interesting development is the controversial omission of crop-based biofuels. This is surprising as it seems to be inconsistent with previous EU Commission policy. All is explained in our republished article from the Energy Census website below: How Will the Omission of Crop-based Ethanol and Biodiesel […]

Separate Food Waste Collections By 2023 In England Need Funding Urgently

It might seem obvious that for English local authorities to implement the separate Food Waste Collections, which are set to become a legal requirement on all LAs, by 2023 in England need help with funding urgently.

Research and Development (R&D) Tax Credits for UK Biogas Plant Operators – Are You Claiming Yours?

That R&D tax credits are often available to Biogas Plant operators is often missed by the general accountancy skills engaged by the UK AD industry, experts believe. We wonder whether you are claiming yours? No doubt that no two biogas plants are ever built quite the same! Every one of them requires quite a significant […]

2020 A Lost Year for New Anaerobic Digestion in the UK

2020 has been a lost year for new anaerobic digestion plant capacity in the UK. A few years ago there were UK biogas plants starting construction at the rate of at least two a month, and the industry was even then disappointed and thought the rate should be higher. It was hoped that at least […]

Anaerobic Digestion & Biogas Potential Neglected in 2020 UK Report Failure

Not for the first time “biogas potential has been neglected” – we reported in August 2020. An influential Think-Tank report has now been published by experts who should know better, and which completely misunderstands and ignores the full scope and potential of the anaerobic digestion and biogas industry “on the road to recovery”. Referring to […]
