ABSL and Greenenergy to jointly develop waste-based biofuel plants in the UK

November 11, 2021 |

In the UK, Advanced Biofuel Solutions Ltd and Greenergy have signed a Joint Development Agreement to develop, construct and operate up to five municipal waste-based biofuel plants in the UK. 

Design work for the first plant to be situated at Ellesmere Port near Liverpool is underway and commercial production is due to commence in 2025. Subsequent plants are planned over the following years. 

Using ABSL’s proven and patented RadGas technology, the first plant will convert annually 133,000 metric tons of municipal waste into biomethane for gas vehicles or biohydrogen for hydrogen vehicles. 

Together, the five plants would replace millions of liters of fossil petrol and diesel used in transport fuels, saving 800,000 tons of carbon dioxide per year, with the output of the plants equivalent to powering 5,000 HGVs. The fuels will qualify as development fuels under the UK’s Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation.
