Our Approach to Biogas

To date over 1,100 biogas plants have been built across the UK, offering a safe and proven method of generating energy. Collectively they produce 4,000GWh of natural gas, enough to heat 280,000 homes

We are partnering with farms to use their manure waste, converting it into biogas whilst also producing biofertilisers for agricultural use. These plants support farms’ sustainability as well as creating secure long-term local jobs


Biogas plants work via the following four steps:

Step 1.

Farms provide their manures, crops and other waste to be fed into the biogas plant 

Step 2.

Anaerobic digestor tanks break down the waste materials using natural microorganisms to produce biogas

Step 3.

Biogas is then upgraded into biomethane by removing impurities. As part of this biogas upgrading step, Carbon Dioxide is separated out and is sold for use by different industries including the food and beverage sector, tackling a UK shortage

Step 4.

The Anaerobic Digestor tanks produce digestate — an organic biofertiliser — which is provided to local farms for them to use as an alternative to chemical fertilisers
