Edie Live 2016 - Clearfleau demonstrates how food manufacturers turn production residues into renewable energy
17-18 May NEC, Birmingham Stand i26
Clearfleau has been selected as a UK finalist for the prestigious 2016 European Business Awards for the Environment (EBAE). Its current projects are in the dairy, vegetable, and distillery sectors and demonstrate how production residues are a potential source of renewable energy rather than just an unwanted overhead.
Clearfleau’s customers including First Milk’s Lake District Biogas plant, the first ‘cheese gas to grid’ bio-energy project in the UK and Europe based only on cheese production residues, are reducing fossil fuel bills, cutting effluent disposal costs, eliminating off-site residue transport and reducing carbon emissions.
Decentralised energy generation on manufacturing sites is challenging traditional methods of handling both liquid and solid production residues. On-site anaerobic digestion is a cost effective and sustainable solution which converts bio-degradable residues into energy for factory use and offers ROI within 5 years.
