The Austrian biogas plant engineering firm Entec Biogas GmbH has beaten off strong competition to win a contract for the design and construction of a major new biogas plant in Selby, North Yorkshire.

The contract, which includes the engineering and design, procurement, overall construction and commissioning of the biogas plant is worth in excess of £4.5m.

The Austrian company impressed its client Whites Biogas Ltd with its innovative and flexible technology which is fully compliant with industry regulations.

The Selby plant is currently in the planning phase. Once fully operational, it will process 82,500 tonnes of food and slaughterhouse waste per year and produce over 13 MW of electricity and in excess of 11 MW of thermal power. Construction on the project is set to commence in early 2010.


The demand for biogas plants is increasing, and Entec Biogas GmbH's joint directors Brigitte Maier and Bernhard Schulz agree this new contract is very promising: “This is our first contract for a food waste fermentation plant in England, and we are convinced that we have taken the first step towards successful market entry. The numerous enquiries we have received from the UK show that WRAP’s Anaerobic Digestion Demonstration Programme in England is working and that this method of producing renewable energy from food waste is setting a global example.”
