Black Dog Biogas generates renewable electrical energy by way of anaerobic digestion, the place natural matter, corresponding to maize and grass, on this case 100% sourced from the Isle of Wight, are damaged down by enzymes to supply biogas and biofertiliser.
The biogas is used as a gas in two combined-heat-and-power models to generate renewable warmth and electrical energy. The nutrient-rich bio fertiliser is unfold again onto the Isle of Wight’s arable farmland and helps to develop extra crops for each the Black Dog facility and selling sustainable agricultural practices. This helps assist a round financial system and avoids using carbon-intensive fertilisers.
Black Dog Biogas generates adequate energy to provide round 80% of Vestas’ wants, in addition to round 1,200 houses on the Isle of Wight.
James Luter, senior manufacturing facility director of Vestas’ Isle of Wight facility mentioned: “The UK Government has unveiled bold plans to increase the nation’s offshore wind capability, probably powering all UK houses by 2030.
