Chicken Litter to Power a Biogas and Fertiliser Plant in Northern Ireland

Submitted by on June 21, 2016 – 12:38 pmNo Comment

(Bioenergy Insight)  Ireland-based renewable energy developer Stream BioEnergy has commenced construction in Northern Ireland on a new biogas plant that will process large volumes of chicken litter.

The plant, to be located just outside the town of Ballymena, will generate 3MW of renewable electricity from up to 40,000 tonnes of chicken litter each year, enough to 4,000 homes.

The capital cost of the plant will be approximately £20 million (€25.8m), financed partially by funds managed by Foresight Group and Invest Northern Ireland.

Xergi, a specialist supplier of large scale biogas plants, will deliver the plant and will also be a shareholder in the project.

”The plant will convert the chicken litter into biogas, which will be used to produce green electricity. At the same time the nutrients become an environmentally friendly fertiliser that can replace chemical fertiliser for farmers,” said CEO Jørgen Ballermann from Xergi.

One of the intentions of the project is to handle chicken litter in a way that protects the environment and improves on the traditional practice of spreading the litter untreated on land.  READ MORE and MORE (BHSL)
