Biogas Enters National Grid for First Time

Biogas Enters National Grid for First Time Print E-mail

 

For the first time renewable gas has been added to the UK's national gas grid network.

Sewage from 33,000 Oxfordshire homes is sent to Didcot sewage treatment works, where it is treated in an anaerobic digestor to produce biogas. Up until October 2010 this gas was simply flared. However, a new joint venture between Thames Water, Centrica and Scotia Gas networks, cleans the gas and pipes it into the national gas grid network. This provides gas for approximately 200 homes, and the  digestate will be used as a source of agricultural fertiliser.
