The company has started work on a plant in Hampshire (Sparsholt College) that will start working in 2018. In it, the first biodigester in the United Kingdom will be put into operation that will transform grass into biomethane, enough to heat more than 4,000 homes.
An anaerobic digester capable of converting the grass from the surrounding fields into biomethane in 45 days. A biomethane that would be injected into the gas network to cover the needs of no less than 4,000 average homes.
A more sustainable gas than gas from fracking. It is estimated that grassy fields in the UK can provide all the gas needed to heat your homes. But for this, with current technology, 5,000 biodigesters of this type would be needed.
A massive and permanent source of energy, as lawns in the UK are a powerhouse. The economic benefit would be directly passed on locally, as currently most of the gas consumed in Great Britain comes from the North Sea, Qatar and Norway.
Four more biodigesters are in the pipeline in Somerset, Cambridgeshire, Shropshire and Wiltshire.
