With the stringent environmental legislation now placed on industry, the generation of power from renewable sources is an important consideration, especially where there is readily available feedstock that can be converted to biofuel.
The anaerobic digestion of biomass derived from sewage or degradable plant materials isn’t only about reducing carbon emissions. Operators are well aware of the cost and efficiency savings that can be made by generating electricity through sustainable sources too.
At Finning, we have been at the forefront of AD within landfill, recycling and wastewater treatment facilities for over 10 years with many industry firsts. We have helped operators to finance, design and develop biofuel power solutions that provide fast payback and return on investment. Today our AD and biogas power systems can be found at work across the UK and beyond, generating clean electricity to power site processes.
We offer a full range of Cat® gas-fuelled generator sets and a comprehensive combined heat and power (CHP) portfolio ranging from just 400 kW up to 4.3 MW, capable of operating on a wide range of biofuels. We can also tailor a bespoke package incorporating gas treatment technologies to ensure the longevity and reliable performance of the engine.
Our experience extends to a full design and build service, where we can take on the full project management for a new anaerobic digestion treatment plant, including feasibility studies, civil engineering, electrical and mechanical installations and construction.
