BiogenGreenfinch secures planning permission for 45,000 tonne Warwickshire AD facility

Planning permission has been granted by Warwickshire county council to BiogenGreenfinch for a 45,000-tonne anaerobic digestion (AD) facility in Warwickshire.

The plant, which will be built, owned and operated by BiogenGreenfinch on the Merevale & Blyth estate, is expected to provide enough electricity to power 2,000 homes.

Chief executive Richard Barker described the project as a “win-win-win”.

He said: “Merevale is an excellent site for an AD plant – centrally located and with excellent transport links to nearby large population centres. We are diverting food waste from landfill, we are generating renewable electricity for the National Grid and also delivering a fantastic biofertiliser for crops on the land around the plant. We look forward to working with local food waste producers in the coming months and years to make this plant a success.”

BiogenGreenfinch already has three AD facilities operating in Shropshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire.
