Case Study

CO2Sense invests in innovative anaerobic digestion plant

CO2Sense invested £750,000 in GWE Biogas, the first anaerobic digestion plant in Yorkshire that generates electricity from food waste.

The investment by CO2Sense meant that the plant could be completed in one phase.

The plant takes in around 50,000 tonnes of food waste, and generates enough clean energy to power 3,200 homes. Over ten years, it will save around 260,000 tonnes of CO2. The plant became operational in December 2010.

In Autumn 2013 the investment was repaid ahead of schedule releasing funds for further reinvestment. 

Returns from CO2Sense investments are reinvested to fund further renewable energy projects in the UK. Flexible finance is available to cover costs associated with project development.
