Grant awarded under Future Fuels for Freight and Flight Competition. (F4C)
Rika Biofuel Technologies RBT are pleased to confirm that we have won a grant from the UK Department for Transport for £5m to construct a large biogas installation that will utilize the Bioextruder technology to generate biogas from straw. Construction will commence in 2020 and the plant, when complete, will produce around 5000 tonnes of liquid biomethane for use by HGVs.
With limited support for new biogas plants as the Feed in Tariff and Renewable Heat Incentive come to an end this project could demonstrate a game changer for the industry and open up a new market for biogas generated from waste via AD to be used in the transport sector.
