Biogen signs North Wales AD contract

Waterman is acting as Independent Certifier for another major new food waste management project in North Wales.

The North Wales consortium of councils has signed a 15-year contract with green energy company Biogen and its investors Iona Capital to develop and operate an Anaerobic Digestion (AD) plant at Waen, Denbighshire. The contract was signed on the 31st October and subject to planning permission, will see Biogen build a 22,500 tonne-a-year capacity AD plant.

Councillor David Smith, Denbighshire county council’s lead member for environment, commented: “This new AD facility will be good for the environment, because it will generate electricity from the food waste that people have thrown away. BiogenGreenfinch have a proven track record in delivering AD facilities.”

Once operational, the AD facility will treat food waste from households in the Denbighshire, Conwy and Flintshire areas together with food waste from local businesses. The plant will generate over one megawatt of electricity and produce a digestate which can be used on nearby farmland as a biofertiliser.

Waterman will be providing independent certification on behalf of the North Wales Consortium and Biogen (Uk) Ltd to inspect that the development is delivered in compliance with regulatory procedure.

Joseph Morris, Business Development Director for Waste & Sustainable Energy commented; “We are delighted that another AD project is moving ahead. The project adds to our established and growing reputations in the sector and will deliver real sustainable benefits to the local area.”
