Bio Capital have announced the signing of a new agreement with Hitachi Zosen Inova which will see both companies collaborating on the development of innovative solutions for emerging markets, technologies, and products. The partnership will focus on research and development with a focus on Biofertilisers and Biofuels.

Zurich-based Greentech company Hitachi Zosen Inova (HZI) is a global leader in solutions for energy transition and circular economy including Waste to Energy and Renewable Gas and together with Bio Capital they will work to find solutions based on efficient and environmentally sound technologies.

Formed in 2018 by Equitx and Helios Energy Investments, Bio Capital have become a leader in producing biogas in the UK. 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.

This is following a recent contract with Hitachi Zosen Inova to enhance two of the Bio Capital sites, East London Biogas and Corbiere Renewables which will see installation of biomethane upgrading & further biogenic CO2 facilities. This partnership will seek to further enhance the sustainability and circular economy contribution of AD and is a crucial step forward that will drive the future growth and development of our respective companies.

With a wealth of knowledge on research, development, process and operations in both teams, Bio Capital look to collaborate and develop key technical solutions in these new low carbon sustainable markets.

Innovation and cooperation agreements as this are key to being at the forefront of sustainable solutions for low carbon fertiliser and fuels, and Bio Capital and Hitachi Zosen Inova are leading the way!

The Bio Capital / Hitachi Zosen Inova partnership in this innovation space is key to the excellent working relationship between both parties, as they continue to share resources, foster collaboration, and exchange key knowledge across the industry. This is likely to accelerate the innovation of each party and establish commercial solutions much quicker.

David McKee, CTO of Bio Capital stated ‘‘We are only getting started! The development of low carbon infrastructure & sustainable fuel and products is key to delivering net zero!’

Biofuels from Biomethane play a positive role in the circular economy by contributing to a more sustainable energy system. The development and manufacture of organic fertilisers are key for EU/UK targets as they align with sustainable agriculture practice, promoting soil health, reducing environmental impact and having a massive impact on circular economy of food chains. They also contribute to soil fertility without relying on heavily synthetic chemicals.

By further developing these products, from food waste digestion in particular, it has a massive impact in terms of reducing on the reliance of traditional fossil fuels, minimises energy requirements and promotes a sustainable energy and nutrient dense alternative to traditional methods.
