- the power generated will heat more than 8,000 homes for a year, says company


Severn Trent has invested £15 million in three new biomethane gas-to-grid plants. The water company, which serves eight million people across the Midlands and Wales, reports that the power generated will be enough to heat more than 8,000 homes for a year. Severn Trent itself was formed in 1974 as a regional, state-owned water authority based in Birmingham and responsible for water management and supply, and waste water treatment and disposal. Its focus lies in the catchment areas of two of Britain's largest rivers - the Severn and the Trent With its biomethane plant initiative, Severn Trent plans to use the biogas fermented from sewage sludge, contaminated energy crops and food waste to make its own operations more sustainable.

The equipment and processes are already up and running at Strongford Sewage Treatment Works in Stoke and at Stoke Bardolph Sewage Treatment Works in Nottingham. Spondon Sewage Treatment


Works in Derby is due to become operational in 2018. Each of the constantly operating plants will produce up to 500 cubic metres of biomethane an hour and this fuel is suitable for use in power generation, district heating, industry and even in private vehicles.


An engineer at Severn


Trent, Martyn Lightfoot, comments: “This investment is all part of our programme to self-generate the equivalent of half of the energy we use by 2020. “These new plants will


help us save around £3 million a year on our energy bills and that saving will be passed on to our customers who already pay less than £1 a day for their clean and waste water services.” In 2014 Severn Trent Water opened a facility at Minworth Sewage Treatment Worksdesigned to convert biogas from the anaerobic digestion process so it can be used in domestic gas supply. It cost £8M to build, while another £4M was spent on installing combined heat and power generators.Today, the gas-to-grid plant converts 1200 cubic metres of biogas an hour into 750 cubic metres of biomethane.
