Potato plant for Biogen

BiogenGreenfinch is to build a new anaerobic digestion plant for Branston one of the UKs largest suppliers and distributors of potatoes.

As revealed on on 14 September, Branston planned to build an AD plant to turn potato waste at the companys premises near Lincoln into green electricity and fertiliser and now BiogenGreenfinch has signed the agreement to build the plant.

BiogenGreenfinch chairman John Ibbett said: The agreement to build an AD plant for potato waste at Branston is another important step along the journey to use food waste to reduce the greenhouse gases we in Britain emit and to produce electricity from sustainable sources. Were delighted to do business with Branston and to see that they share our vision for a Britain where technology like AD could have a significant impact on the environment and all of our futures.

The plant is part of a £1.4 million investment in green technologies by Branston which has been supported by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and the European Union via the East Midlands Regional Development Agency.
