A 50-tonne, Avery Weigh-Tronix weighbridge is helping Malaby Biogas generate 500kW per hour of green electricity to feed the National Grid and supply renewable energy to nine business units on its Warminster, UK-based anaerobic digestion facility.
Phase one of the developments at Bore Hill Farm will provide for an integrated biogas plant and phase two will redevelop disused farm buildings into a group of zero carbon business units.
Using UK designed anaerobic digestion (AD) technology and a combined heat and power (CHP) system, the plant will process waste diverted from landfills to provide renewable energy to the farmstead redevelopment as well as exporting the excess power to the local electricity network. The plant will generate enough renewable electricity for the equivalent of approximately 1,000 houses.
The 15m, 50 tonne Bridgemont pit mounted weighbridge is being used on site to measure more than 20,000 tonnes of waste per year.
