The pilot plant is an important step in commercialising the BioSNG technology. This is achieved through the construction of a test bed facility to demonstrate technical operation of the process and assessment of its environmental and commercial attributes.
The plant has been developed by Cadent (formerly known as National Grid Gas Distribution), advanced waste to energy and fuels company Advanced Plasma Power, clean energy firm Progressive Energy and Schmack Carbotech.
Strategic backing and contributions towards the £5 million project have come from Ofgem’s Network Innovation Competition and the European BioEnergy Securing the Future (BESTF) ERANET programme. The ERANET programme is a consortium of eight EU Member States and Associated Countries to provide funding to collaborate on innovative bioenergy demonstration projects.
The project commenced in March 2014, construction of the plant was completed in 2015 and experimental work commenced early in 2016.
