UK AD & Biogas 2014 sponsors

At UK AD & Biogas 2014 we offer a number of excellent sponsorship and advertising packages. Find out more about 2014’s sponsors here:

Conference Sponsor: Imtech

ImtechImtech Water, Waste and Energy – an engineering and construction management contractor dedicated to providing value-added services on a wide range of water, biosolids, waste-to-energy and biomass projects – returns again this year to exhibit at UK AD & Biogas 2014 (stand E089). In addition, the company has taken the decision to sponsor the Conference.

Imtech has an unrivalled track record in developing award-winning, environmentally sustainable solutions and is the leading delivery partner for major AD projects in the UK.  One of its most recent contract awards is with Tamar Energy to build a 3MWe anaerobic digestion plant at Hoddesdon in Hertfordshire.  The plant will convert 66,000 tpa of unavoidable food wastes to around 3 MWe of renewable electricity each year.  This is enough to power 6,000 homes.  It will also produce 18,000 tpa of renewable fertiliser material.

Imtech is excited to be exhibiting at and sponsoring this year’s UK AD & Biogas and will be focusing on four principal aspects of waste and energy at this show.  These are biogas upgrading, anaerobic digestion of source segregated organic waste (SSOW), anaerobic digestion of municipal solid waste (MSW) and the digestion of sewage.

With a number of completed anaerobic digestion projects behind it, Imtech is one of the leading companies in anaerobic digestion and advanced anaerobic digestion.  There is a multitude of successful profiles of AD projects in the water industry, and examples of anaerobic digestion of SSOW includes the Poplars AD project for Biffa and the current Hoddesdon AD project for Tamar Energy.  The project at Wakefield for Shanks is a demonstration of anaerobic digestion of MSW.  The AD facility forms part of a planned waste treatment park at South Kirkby near Wakefield, which will receive and treat up to 230,000 tonnes per year of the Authority’s waste. Once completed, the 65,000 tonnes per annum AD plant will produce biogas for renewable energy generation, which is estimated to be able to power approximately 3,000 homes.

With the imminent completion of a project at Minworth, Severn Trent Water’s largest sewage treatment works, the company has an excellent example of the benefits of biogas upgrading and is taking Advanced AD to the next level, with Biomethane Gas-to-Grid.  Once complete, the new plant will take approximately 1200 m³/hour of the biogas and remove carbon dioxide and trace contaminants, to produce biomethane (97 –98% methane).  The remaining biogas will still be processed through existing CHP units, to generate electricity and heat for use within the wastewater treatment process, with excesses upgraded gas exported off-site to the national grid.

Capital investment into this Biomethane Gas-to-Grid plant is economically attractive, following the introduction of the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive scheme.  It has an anticipated three year payback period.  When complete and combined with the existing CHP plant, it will ensure that the Minworth treatment site is energy self-sufficient, with increased income.
