ON-FARM AD PLANTS WITH FULL FINANCE


NEW PARTNERSHIP TO FOCUS ON SUSTAINABILITY COMPLIANCE AND REPORTING


Qila Energy builds AD plants in a range of sizes for farmers across the UK. The design, installation and commissioning of every plant – whether sub-250 kWe, 499 kWe, 1 MWe plus, or biomethane – is carried out by Qila’s UK engineering team. Each facility includes hydrolysis tanks that enable the farmer to use far larger proportions of manures and grass silage than plants with a single digester – even the sub-250 kWe model has a hydrolysis element that allows the operator to use spoilt straw and as much as 80 per cent cattle manure as feedstock. Qila is the leading UK developer of hydrolysis-based AD plants, boasting six operational 499 kWe facilities. A further 12 are currently in construction or development: three at 250 kWe; two at 499 kWe; two at 1 MWe; plus five biomethane plants. Qila offers full funding for farmers; over half the plants it has built so far have been fully funded, with the rest self-financed. Stand P161 www.qilaenergy.com


Established in 2003, NNFCC is a UK consultancy focused on understanding the broader biorenewable markets and technologies. It supports operators with advice on investment, technologies and providers, operational modelling and profitability analysis. Combined with nutritional expertise and feedstock supply opportunities from AB Agri, this new partnership can help developers create, deliver and operate a compliant and profitable renewable energy project. The partnership extends NNFCC’s reach by offering AD operators more in-depth advice on greenhouse gas compliance and monitoring, and product use information. And, as the need for sustainability reporting rapidly approaches, it can also help operators understand sustainable feedstock supplies and availability, calculate GHG savings and supply chain impacts, and identify potential improvements. A bespoke GHG calculator will be showcased at the event, to demonstrate the complexities and key sensitivities in reporting. Stands G507/F407 www.nnfcc.co.uk www.abagri.com


SEMINAR SPEAKER TO REVEAL BENEFITS OF GAS MIXING SYSTEM


At 11am on 1 July at the Purple Seminar, Alastair James Ward from Aarhus University will reveal key findings from his study into the performance of Landia’s GasMix at a site in Denmark. The seminar, entitled ‘Operational performance – innovation and process’, represents Landia’s first time presenting a paper at UK AD & Biogas, despite being one of ADBA’s founder members, and follows reports by numerous GasMix customers of a significant increase in their site’s gas yields. The company


is delighted to be able to present a detailed study, painstakingly compiled over several months, to support these claims. “The figures will speak for themselves,” reveals Hugh Vaughan, Director. “In addition to the greatly improved gas yields and reduction in power use, Landia’s GasMix is also externally-mounted, therefore far easier to maintain and much safer than other systems.” Stand B101 www.landia.co.uk


FULL SCALE PRE-TREATMENT SYSTEM ON DISPLAY


Agricultural feedstocks such as solid manure, straw, and grass cuttings from wetland areas can be difficult to handle in a biogas plant without proper pre-treatment. This is largely due to the increased risk of mechanical problems when feeding the plant, as well as a high chance of creating a floating layer in the digester. To counteract this problem, Xergi has developed a reliable and flexible pre-treatment system. The X-chopper®


can


handle any type of solid biomass, delivering a homogenous output that can easily be mixed with liquid material and pumped into the digester. Delivering a continuous process with low energy consumption and low maintenance costs, the X-chopper® the X-hopper®


and the X-belt® scale X-chopper®
