Anaerobic digestion (AD) is the breakdown of organic material by micro-organisms in the absence of oxygen. The AD process produces biogas, biomethane, and a biofertiliser, rich in nutrients.
The AD market in the UK is growing rapidly, and we believe that AD is set to play a key role in the UK’s renewable energy mix and impact the UK’s Net Zero targets.
Our AD plants treat food waste and agricultural feedstock.
AD provides the ideal circular solution to the issue of food waste. The UK produces over 10 million tonnes of food waste annually, only 20% of which is recycled, the remaining goes to Landfill and recovery, which involves incineration.
Formed in 2018 by Equitix and Helios Energy Investments, Bio Capital have become the largest biogas producer in the UK by MWh in a relatively short period.
Bio Capital owns and Operates a diverse and growing portfolio of anaerobic digestion (AD) plants across the UK, Bio Capital invests in both operational and greenfield assets, including gas-to-grid and electricity generation facilities, low carbon vehicle fuel, sustainable biofertiliser and compost.
AD and biogas have the potential to play a crucial role in the UK’s energy independence and security journey. Bio Capital is proud to be making a significant contribution to the green economy, providing green jobs, reducing emissions and protecting our environment.
