The Project will construct a commercial demonstration plant to produce renewable, low carbon methane (BioSNG) by gasification of household waste. BioSNG could eventually meet 40% of UK domestic gas demand, resulting in customers being able to benefit from the continued use of the gas network into the future.
The Project will provide a commercial reference facility and dissemination of knowledge to allow funders, engineering contractors, waste operators and gas off-takers to quantify the risks, costs and rewards of full scale plants. This is an essential prerequisite to enable the roll-out of a large number of BioSNG plants across the UK addressing the critical issue of cost-effective provision of renewable fuel.
