The Official Information Portal on Anaerobic Digestion

Biogas Map

This Official Biogas Map shows all operational anaerobic digestion plants in the UK (excluding water treatment facilities). Click here to open the map in a new window. An excel version of the database used to populate the map now can be downloaded by clicking here.

This map is developed by NNFCC for information purposes only and while every effort has been made to ensure the information is correct, the NNFCC cannot be held responsible for any errors contained herein.

Plants can be filtered by the following categories:

  • Agricultural – plants that use predominantly agricultural feedstock such as manures, slurries, crops and crop residues.
  • Waste - plants that use predominantly municipal, commercial and industrial waste streams as feedstock.

Each is then further categorised by the end-use of the biogas:

  • Heat and/or Power (CHP) – an anaerobic digester generating biogas which is burned on-site to generate heat, power or both
  • Biomethane to Grid (BtG) – an anaerobic digester generating and upgrading biogas, to derive biomethane for injection into the national gas grid

To have a digester listed on the map, or to update details on an existing facility, please complete our map request form and we will consider your request.

Further information on planned AD facilities is available in the ‘Anaerobic Digestion in the UK’ report published annually by NNFCC.
