20 free small-scale anaerobic digestion units offered

A manufacturer of small and micro sized anaerobic digesters (AD) is giving away 20 of them to businesses that would benefit from having such technology on-site.

SEaB Energy, the manufacturers of the units, said that each AD system could process 2.5 tonnes of organic waste a day. This makes them suitable for use at micro breweries, food manufacturers, caterers and shopping centres.

The AD units produce biogas, which can be fed back into the National Grid, as well as digestate that complies with the PAS110 standard.

According to the bioenergy company, the income from these sources over 20 years could offset the cost of AD unit installation and scheduled maintenance. Costs from organic waste disposal are also eliminated.

Sandra Sassow, chief executive of SEaB Energy, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for businesses, who see the benefits of AD but have been put off by the lack of suitable facilities locally and the huge costs involved in waste transportation.”

The funding for the 20 units is coming from investors supporting the roll-out of the new technology.
