THE CHALLENGE

Granville Ecopark is a state of the art organic waste treatment plant, based in Northern Ireland, which produces renewable energy using Anaerobic Digestion.

Anaerobic Digestion (AD) is widely recognised as a sustainable method to produce biogas. This biogas can be used directly as fuel in combined heat and power gas engines; it also produces a nutrient-rich digestate which can be used as fertiliser.

While the UK continues to send approximately one third of the food it buys to landfill, Granville Ecopark are breaking this cycle by producing ‘clean energy’ from food waste.

THE SOLUTION

Granville Ecopark’s CHP plant in Dungannon, Northern Ireland, uses advanced technology to generate clean energy in the most effective way possible.  With this in mind, and keeping with the theme of efficiency, the company invested in a CDE system, named the MSU:10 in 2013 to remove the residual plastics from their AD tanks.  

The MSU:10  is a portable sludge screen that facilitates efficient solid and liquid separation from sewage sludges, food waste and a range of other materials..  The equipment not only allows for maximum dewatering of screenings to minimise waste volumes and disposal costs but also ensures the highest quality sludge product.

THE RESULTS

While the UK continues to send approximately one third of the food it buys to landfill, Granville Ecopark are breaking this cycle by producing ‘clean energy’ from food waste.

The MSU:10 allows the company to remove residual plastics from their Anaerobic Digestion plans, ensuring the largest possible capacity in their digesters and therefore maximum biogas production. Crucially, this has allowed the Granville Ecopark to achieve BSI PAS 110 as a result of their quality protocol.  Previously these materials would have been considered a waste product.

“Our investment in this technology reflects our sustainable approach and our commitment to ensuring the most state-of-the-art facilities for Anaerobic Digestion. We believe that waste is a resource, so together with CDEnviro it’s great that we can set an example on what a Circular Economy should look like.”
