Working to Achieve Genuinely Sustainable Energy

   

Malaby Biogas owns and operates the Bore Hill Farm Biodigester in Warminster, Wiltshire. In May 2017 it celebrated it 5th anniversary. During that period the plant has increased its efficiency significantly.

5 year statistics: 

  • Waste In: 89,000 tonnes.   Waste out: zero

  • Renewable Electricity Generated: 30,200,000 kW

  • Low Carbon Fertiliser: 84,000 tonnes

Our innovative and award-winning renewable energy business has been at the forefront of anaerobic digestion (AD) technology since the designing started in 2008. Uniquely, it forms part of a wider integrated site development. Diverting food waste from landfill, the Bore Hill Farm Biodigester provides a combined waste disposal and energy generation solution in one safe, clean and highly-efficient process.

Operating one of the few independent AD plants in the UK specialising in the diversion of food waste from landfill, Malaby Biogas has driven innovation at every stage from design to construction to successful operation and optimisation. We are extremely proud of our highly-efficient and award-winning AD facility.

To assure a safe and well run operation the site has ISO 9001 & 14001 accreditation and the Biofertiliser is certified as a Quality Digestate under the PAS110 specification.

Working closely with the local community is an important part of our operations. We have provided unique opportunities for engagement from site tours during the construction phase through to visits from local interest groups, sustainability groups, schools and industry professionals, along with educational outreach to planning authorities and trade bodies.

With a strong ethical discipline, a practical focus on project delivery and demonstrating the benefits of local solutions, Malaby Biogas has been able to provide a clean and efficient waste processing and renewable energy facility that the industry can be proud of.

Integration, efficiency and sustainability are key ideals which drive our ambition for a greener, cleaner world and a sustainable environment; and we strongly believe that the Bore Hill Farm facility sets the benchmark for future renewable energy developments.
