UK gets five waste-based biofuel plants


United KingdomAdvanced Biofuel Solutions (ABSL) and Greenergy signed a Joint Development Agreement to develop, construct and operate up to five municipal waste-based biofuel plants in the UK.

Commercial production is scheduled to begin in 2025 at the first plant, which will be located near Liverpool in Ellesmere Port. Over the next few years, additional plants are expected to be built.

The first plant will convert annually 133,000 tonnes of municipal waste into biomethane for gas vehicles or biohydrogen for hydrogen vehicles using ABSL’s proven and patented RadGas technology. ABSL.

A total of 5,000 HGVs could be powered by the combined output of the five plants, which would save 800,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year by replacing millions of litres of fossil fuels.

Renewable Fuel Obligation (RFO) rules will allow the fuels to be used as development fuels.
