Harnessing Anaerobic Digestion for Carbon Capture

Anaerobic digestion (AD) is well-known in the renewable energy field for turning organic waste into valuable biogas to provide green energy to homes and businesses. But its importance goes beyond just creating renewable energy. AD has a crucial role in carbon capture and storage (CCS), which can help us not just to balance but actually … Read more

What are the outputs from anaerobic digestion?

Anaerobic digestion (AD) plants are built to produce renewable energy, which is either used as biogas to power a combined heat and power (CHP) engine or upgraded to biomethane, to be used in domestic boilers. They also produce digestate biofertiliser and carbon dioxide (CO2). These outputs can all be used, either domestically or in industry, … Read more

Five ways anaerobic digestion supports the environment

For the UK to reach its target to become net zero by 2050, it’s crucial we increase our investment in climate positive projects. Anaerobic digestion (AD) goes beyond producing renewable energy. It offers many benefits to the environment too – such as disposing of our waste in an environmentally friendly way, producing organic fertiliser to … Read more

Food waste can be used to generate energy

Sustainability is at core of Attleborough’s new green gas supply

Locally collected food waste, coupled with an upgraded anaerobic digestion plant, is creating a sustainable energy solution for businesses and homes in the Norfolk town of Attleborough. Construction work at a Norfolk-based anaerobic digestion (AD) plant will provide households in the south-east town of Attleborough with 10MW of biomethane per hour – enough to supply … Read more

Why anaerobic digestion is better than fossil fuels

Anaerobic digestion (AD) produces biogas and digestate fertiliser. Biogas is a mixture of gases which can be upgraded to produce biomethane, the biological equivalent of natural gas fossil fuel. Although biomethane is chemically identical to natural gas, there are several reasons why it is better for the planet. 1. Burning of fossil fuels releases carbon, … Read more

Capturing Carbon in Anaerobic Digestion

In anaerobic digestion (AD), waste materials such as food waste, can be processed to generate energy, enabling a circular system in which waste is diverted from landfill to power or heat homes, or be used in transport. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) and utilisation (CCU) technology can be used alongside AD to utilise carbon dioxide … Read more
