Anaerobic digestion firm BiogenGreenfinch has been appointed to design, build and operate a landmark green energy plant in north-west Wales.
The company was named preferred bidder for the construction of the plant in Llwyn Isaf.
It will be the first anaerobic digestion facility in Wales specifically designed to take council-collected food waste.
Expected to process 11,000 tonnes of food waste each year from local homes and businesses, it will create renewable electricity for the grid and biofertiliser for use on nearby farmland.
BiogenGreenfinch chief executive Richard Barker said: “Together with our funders Iona Capital, we look forward to working with Gwynedd Council over the next 15 years to make this project both an environmental and operational success.”
