General Electric to buy AD builder Monsal

US giant General Electric (GE) has agreed a deal to buy UK-based anaerobic digestion technology provider Monsal. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Once the takeover is completed, Monsal will become part of GE’s Power and Water division.

GE will use Monsal’s technology to offer municipalities and industrial manufacturers the option of disposing of wastewater treatment byproducts via AD, thus generating renewable energy.

Heiner Markhoff, president and chief executive, water and process technologies for GE Power & Water, said: “The acquisition of Monsal, with its advanced anaerobic digestion technology, will enable us to provide our customers with more energy-efficient options for water treatment solutions.

“Now our wastewater treatment solutions can be combined with new, advanced anaerobic digestion technologies to convert biosolids to renewable sources of energy for our customers.”

Monsal managing director Aidan Cumiskey said: “Joining the GE family will allow Monsal to bring our technologies to a significantly broader audience as well as give us R&D capabilities at a much larger scale than we have now. We expect to expand our product and technology range with the GE resource, so that we become the ‘go-to’ company globally for anaerobic digestion.”
