As suppliers to Anaerobic Digestion Plants, King’s Boiler Hire are well aware of the huge potential of AD and its ability to help businesses make use of waste products and create a more sustainable environment. Anaerobic Digestion* benefits many different groups including the local community, industry, farmers and the environment.
King’s Boiler Hire work with green energy specialists throughout the UK. One such company is Future Biogas, who specialise in the construction and operation of biogas plants. Their plants operate on a range of locally sourced biomass feedstocks to generate clean, reliable, renewable energy.
With two new anaerobic digestion plants under construction in Norfolk, Future Biogas needed hot water boilers for the initial start-up process and it was King’s Boiler Hire that they contacted. With branches in nearby Mildenhall, King’s in-house AD experts were able to discuss requirements and delivery was promptly arranged. The first boiler, a 440kw unit, was delivered in October 2015 where a large anaerobic plant is turning pig and agricultural waste into biogas; enough to heat 4,500 homes in the winter and 60,000 homes in the summer. The second boiler, a 659kw unit, was delivered to their second site in November 2015 where the AD plant is to provide up to 4.7Mw of electricity.
These are just two of the AD plants in the East Anglia region using the services of King’s Boiler Hire to help turn waste into renewable energy. To find out how a King’s boiler can boost your business speak to our experts today on +44(0)1992 451629.
*Anaerobic Digestion (AD) is the breakdown of organic material by micro-organisms in the absence of oxygen. AD produces biogas, a methane-rich gas that can be used as a fuel, and digestate, a source of nutrients that can be used as a fertiliser. Increasingly AD is being used to make the most of our waste by turning it into renewable energy.
