Green gas from Cumbrian Cheese
Project: Aspatria, United Kingdom
Feedstock: Biogas from cheese production
Upgrading 1000 Nm³/h
Product: Gas to grid injection
Here, in the area of Aspatria, Cumbrian Cheese is well known. The waste of the production is digested to biogas and upgraded to green gas with a CarborexMS system. The green gas is distributed to households in the area of Aspatria. Even more interesting it will become, now that supermarket Sainbury’s has shown interest to let her trucks drive on sustainable and fossil-free energy. This liquefaction of the green gas can be provided by DMT too, and possibly creates a true circular economy around the well-known Cumbrian Cheese in the United Kingdom.
Food and Beverages
Food waste in general has a high energy density. This results in high yields when producing biogas through anaerobic treatment. Biogas is a very flexible energy product with proven capabilities in the power, transportation, and heat demanding sectors. In this sector, anaerobic digestion offers significant cost advantages over traditional disposal methods. By upgrading the biogas into natural gas using a DMT Environmental Technology system, a solid business case with an interesting return on investment is assured.
