Awards Season for Malaby Biogas

Sat, 16-03-2013

Malaby Biogas, which operate the Bore Hill Farm Biodigester in Wiltshire, are delighted to announce that their Anaerobic Digestion facility is a finalist for two national awards.

Firstly, Malaby Biogas have been shortlisted for the Property Awards 2013 in the Sustainability Achievement of the Year category. Returning for its 18th year, the Property Awards reward excellence and outstanding performance in the UK property market. The award definition is a “tangible achievement, a team which has stood out, consistently delivered and continually innovated.” The awards ceremony will take place on the evening of 17 April 2013 at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London.

Malaby Biogas has also been shortlisted for the prestigious Organics Recycling Awards 2013 in the AD Output Award category. Malaby Biogas is one of fourteen finalists for the awards organised by the Renewable Energy Association’s (REA) Organics Recycling Group. The category in which Malaby Biogas is nominated is open to “any company operating an anaerobic digestion facility which is producing, supplying and marketing heat and biogas derived resources.” The awards ceremony will take place on 21 March 2013 at the Heythrop Park Resort in Oxfordshire.

Jeremy Jacobs, technical director of the REA and chair of judges said: “I am delighted to present such worthy finalists for the organic recycling awards, the quality and diversity of entrants this year made the selection very challenging!”

Thomas Minter, Director of Malaby Biogas, commented: “We are very proud that our hard work at the Bore Hill Farm site over the last 3 years has been recognised as setting benchmarks within the AD industry. These nominations follow the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust ‘Green Shoots’ award in 2012, where we were recognised as a newcomer to the industry. These more recent nominations recognise that the Bore Hill Farm Biodigester is now fully-operational, extremely efficient and setting the bar very high for other renewable energy facilities.”
