One of the
of biomethane in the UK
At the forefront of the AD industry
Every year we produce over 400GWh of biogas, enough energy for over 40,000 homes.
Maintenance & Engineering
Our expertise means we consistently achieve high plant up-times across the 11 plants we operate. An operations team of over 60 skilled engineers, technicians and operators ensure we achieve this high level of efficiency.
Regulatory & Compliance
In-House Biology Team
Our in-house biology team are constantly monitoring feedstocks, samples of digester contents, and digestate outputs, maximising the efficiency of the digestion process.
Health & Safety
The health, safety and welfare of our people and everyone involved in our operations is of primary importance to Future Biogas. We have a commitment to ensure that it is safe to work throughout our organisation.
Sound environmental practice is key to all we do. We consistently review our environmental targets and update our methodology in line with advances in technology and the latest learnings of environmental science.
Future Biogas is proud to develop people. You can find out more about our apprenticeships in the We Care section.
Benefits to farming
Growing crops for Anaerobic Digestion will help farming businesses achieve a neutral or even negative carbon footprint. Growing for our AD plants allows for the adoption of wider cropping rotations, with gaps between energy and food crops filled with cover crops capable of holding plant nutrients, water and helping to build soil organic matter.
Crops established using methods that minimise soil disturbance further help in the farmers drive to limit carbon release from soils. The AD plant processes crop and farm manures to produce biomethane, but also provides digestate to return to the field that has produced the crop, providing plant nutrition whilst adding to the soils health, stability and vibrancy.
When all of this is combined with long term partnership and clarity on how we do business with our feedstock suppliers – we can start to build genuine resilience into farming businesses. This will help encourage healthier soils, improve biodiversity, increase output of all crops grown on the farm and accelerate the increase of carbon stored in soils.
Biology & Engineering Services
Future Biogas with their joint venture Fern Farming offers full AD biology support, training, bespoke laboratory testing services and data interpretation.
We have developed T16 – an additive for increased nutrient and bio-availability – which currently supports the consistent production of 9,000 m3 of biogas an hour across an number of AD plants in the UK.
In addition to this our operations and engineering teams now offer technical assistance to third parties operating biogas plants.
As a company producing green energy we take our commitment to the environment, our people and the wider community very seriously.
We believe that biodiversity on and around all of our plants should be higher than before the site was developed. Each of our plants has a policy of positive biodiversity management and by planting native species we work to encourage birds, bees and wildlife key to the area.
We place great importance on training and equipping our people for the future. We aim to add to the skill sets of all our operators and engineers with a combination of targeted training and regular meetings to share best practice.
We believe it is important to support others that are doing good in the wider community, and to that end we have recently focused on a number of charities including, Jigsaw, Shooting Star, Rainbows and East Anglia Childrens’ Hospices, NHS charities together as well as a selection of homeless charities local to the areas in which we operate.
