Clayton Hall Farm Biogas still running strong

January 29th, 2014 | 10:29 am

With a new year upon us, we caught up with one of our investments, the Clayton Hall Farm Biogas project in West Yorkshire. Between 2010 and 2011, CO2Sense supported the project through a £600,000 investment split between a traditional loan and a revenue share agreement.

On the 6th of January 2014 we met with the project developer and farm owner, Neil Gemmell, to tour the site. We were delighted to see things running smoothly, with energy production at levels above those initially expected pre-construction.

The project, operational since 2011, is based upon an anaerobic digester capable of yielding enough gas to run a 700kW generator. It has trialled a number of feedstocks to arrive at the most optimum operational yield, and now produces a steady supply of power to the national grid. The digester takes approximately 10,000 tonnes of local food waste and energy crops and has as a result saved approximately 11,000 tonnes of CO2 to date.

CO2Sense’s investment, advice and ongoing support to the project has enabled Clayton Hall farm to bring in an additional income stream and become more sustainable. The investment will be repaid from income generated by the project its self.

CO2Sense are an experienced investor in renewable energy projects with a track record dating back to 2008. If you have a similar scheme you would like to develop, why not contact us for an informal chat.
