AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – UK AD Plant

Construction of an AD plant at a distillery

Clearfleau has broken ground at the site of a new £3 million anaerobic digestion (AD) plant at the Inver House Balmenach distillery in Scotland.

130 cubic metres of whisky by-products will be used daily to produce 2,000 cubic metres of biogas. The biogas will be used to power a combined heat and power plant, which will make the site energy self-sufficient.

According to current scheduling, the plant will be operational by summer 2018.

If you’d like to find out more about this project, it’ll be available to access in full for the next 7 days.

#Editors’Pick – WtE and waste sorting centre

Germany: Renovation of a waste-to-energy plant

MVV Energie is planning to invest €100 million at its waste-to-energy (WtE) site in Friesenheimer Insel, Baden-Württemberg.

The company will be integrating its combined heat and power plant into the existing district heating network and will supply local enterprises with any heat recovered from the thermal waste.

On top of this, MVV is also investing in a new innovative plant for phosphorus recovery and the digitisation of the control room.

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – France Biogas Plant

Development of a biogas plant and district heating network

A new biogas plant, which has been developed for a cheese producing co-operative in Saint-Bonnet-de-Salers, has been completed and will generate between 0.3-0.5 MW of electricity. Just under 11,000 tonnes of animal effluent from farms around the cheese factory will be supplied to the plant.

As well as generating electricity, the plant has also been developed with the capacity to supply heat for a district heating network.

Sweden: Construction of recycling, biogas and thermal power plants
In January 2017, E.ON announced that it was to invest SEK 2.5 billion in a recycling plant in the Upplands-Bro Municipality in north-west Stockholm.

Construction of the facilities, including biogas and thermal power plants, is expected to begin in spring 2017. By integrating recycling and energy recovery in the same location, the materials that aren’t currently able to be re-used will become biogas, electricity and heat.
