Are UK Farmers Sitting on a £24M Biomethane Goldmine?


A new study has shown that medium to large farms could stand to make millions from producing renewable methane for the gas industry. Entitled Biomethane for Gas Grid Injection, the report details how the UK’s farmers are currently missing out on the opportunity to produce gas from suitable organic products and inject it into the country’s natural gas grid for large returns. Rob Heap, of Rob Heap Consulting, who carried out the work, said: “An entry-level anaerobic digestion (AD) plant would be looking to earn in the region of £24-million over 20 years and farms that developed larger plants could earn exponentially more than that.” Given the right conditions, it wouldn’t be difficult to double or even triple that amount.
