The digester that Perpetual Next (85% interest) has built in Ellesmere Port, West England, is almost operational. The so-called Trinity project is in the commissioning phase and will deliver its first green gas by the end of November.
Trinity will produce 4 million m3 biogas annually from organic agricultural residues. The biogas will be upgraded to green gas, a sustainable alternative to fossil natural gas, which will be injected directly into Ellesmere Port's natural gas grid. The residual product of the biogas production (digestate), will be used to make agricultural land more fertile.
Biogas and green gas
The facility in which the feedstock is pre-treated to be fermented into biogas is also currently being completed. The completion of that facility will take place in 2022. Until then, Trinity will use pretreated feedstock for the production of biogas and green gas.
