Biogas Helps Power Limestone Operation

October 20, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

planETPlanET Biogas UK commissioned its fifth biogas plant. The 1.5 MW plant is situated on Singleton Birch’s mining site in North Lincolnshire in England. Singleton Birch, which processes and delivers limestone, will produce 40 percent of its onsite power from biogas.

Singleton Birch says the anaerobic digestion plant will reduce its $16 million annual energy costs.

Manure, slurry, maize and sugar beet supplied from four local farmers, together with grass from the Humberside Airport are the basis for the 30,000 tons of feedstock every year required for the plant, which is expected to generate 12,000 MWh annually.
