Renewable Energy – Hoodies for Aspatria Hornets
Clearfleau is pleased to sponsor the junior team at Aspatria Hornets Rugby League Club and have provided new hoodies. These have been used at matches over the summer. Clearfleau is currently in the process of constructing the bio-energy plant at First Milk’s creamery in Aspatria.
In addition to its junior teams, Aspatria Hornets Rugby League senior team plays in the Cumberland ARL league and are based at St Mungos Park (see www.pitchero.com/clubs/aspatriahornetsrlfc). Peter Thorndyke who runs the junior teams said:
“We are delighted that so soon after starting work at First Milk, Clearfleau agreed to help us with the new hoodies for our junior rugby team. It is great for the kids to be able to attend matches with their smart new kit and it has inspired them to some great results this summer – the highlight being getting to the final of the Broughton Red Rose’s Festival on Saturday 11th July – losing in extra time.”
Sam Tildsley, site manager for the on-site anaerobic digestion and renewable energy plant presented the hoodies to the children and said:

“We are delighted to support Aspatria’s thriving junior rugby league club and hope the new hoodies will help the junior Hornets enjoy their rugby. Renewable energy is crucial to our children’s future. Clearfleau’s plant will support the local economy and supply the gas grid for over 20 years, by which time hopefully at least one of the junior Hornets will have played Rugby League at the top level.”
Clearfleau is the leading British supplier of on-site anaerobic digestion (AD) for food and beverage companies. It is working with leading food manufacturing companies such as First Milk to reduce their impact on the environment and convert production residues into renewable energy.
Many British food and beverage companies are ignoring an unexploited source of renewable energy – their production residues. These can include wash waters, unused ingredients, bi-products and product discards. They represent an increasing overhead in terms of disposal costs. On-site anaerobic digestion (AD) technology converts production residues into valuable biogas, which can then be used to generate heat and power for the production processes.
