Green gas might help attain Scotland’s energy goals

Green gas could substantially help Scotland reach goals established in its recent Energy Strategy.

Anaerobic Digestion & Bioresources Association (ADBA) says the Scots should recycle more organic waste and energy crops into biogas for renewable heat and power, low carbon transport fuel and bio-fertilizers.

Around 45MW of power and 11,000m3/hour of heat in Scotland is currently delivered through anaerobic digestion (AD). Now, across the Great Britain, AD plants have enough capacity to meet the demand of over a million homes.

The Scottish Government’s Energy Strategy fixes a new objective for minimum 50% of all Scotland’s heat, transport, and power consumption to originate from alternative sources by 2030.

Charlotte Morton, Chief Executive of the ADBA, declared: “The Scottish Government has set itself ambitious but necessary targets for generating renewable energy in its new Energy Strategy and renewable heat and electricity produced through AD can make an important contribution to these goals, as well as reducing emissions from landfill, creating rural jobs, and helping to restore degraded soils.”
