Warrens Group Expansion: Greater Food Waste Capacity

Throughout 2020 and into this year Warrens have been working on an expansion project which will both strengthen plant facilities and service for the local community in the North East.

The investment is enabling the creation of two new digestion tanks, and a gas system upgrade, which in turn will increase overall energy export capacity by 42% or 10,500m gas cubed without having to increase the footprint of the current site.

On top of the added benefits the expansion brings to the site, the expansion has created opportunities for 12 contractors throughout the 18-month build. This is alongside the 2 full-time jobs that have been created within the Warrens Group team.

Jake Harrison, the Site Operations Manager said “The recent expansion project allows Warrens Emerald Biogas to further enhance its abilities as the leading Anaerobic Digestion facility in the north of England, to increase its processing capacity and serve even more local and national business to recycle their food waste in a sustainable and cost effective way. More food waste treated means more green energy into the local networks thus creating an enhanced natural synergy between food producers and their customers. WEBG simply creates the loop.”

Additional Biogas Produced – 44,203,500 m3

Additional Electricity Produced – 6,570,000 kwh
