BiogenGreenfinch preferred bidder for Welsh AD plant

Gwynedd Council has appointed BiogenGreenfinch as preferred bidder for the construction of an anaerobic digestion (AD) plant in north west Wales.

The facility will be based in Llwyn Isaf and will process around 11,000 tonnes of domestic and commercial food waste each year, generating enough electricity to power 700 houses.

The food waste will be collected from local homes and businesses via a collection scheme run by Gwynedd Council which will be rolled out this spring. The plant will also be built on an existing landfill site.

Gwynedd Council's senior portfolio leader for the environment Cllr Gareth Roberts said the project was likely to be the first AD facility delivered by a Welsh council.

"This exciting project will ensure that Gwynedd's food waste - which will be collected on a weekly basis in communities across Gwynedd - can be treated in a more efficient way within the county," he said.
