Clearfleau is the leading British supplier of on-site anaerobic digestion solutions for industrial sites, generating renewable energy from liquid production residues, with reference plants in the beverage, dairy, food and biofuel sectors. Anaerobic digestion combines renewable energy production with effluent management and can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions offering clients increased treatment efficiency and an attractive payback.
With a unique approach that allows the plant to be built on a confined footprint, the process converts materials such as sugars, oils and fats, plus reject product or ingredients into biogas to produce renewable electricity and heat for use on site.
Clearfleau's technology is particularly suited to on-site treatment of dairy, food and drinks, and biofuel processing residues. First Milk's Aspatria creamery, in rural Cumbria, is Europe's first dairy processing site to feed bio-methane (up-graded biogas) generated entirely from cheese process residues into the gas grid. The on-site process is fully operational, generating renewable energy from liquid whey residues. The project is now being replicated on another UK dairy site.
