Clearfleau, the leading British provider of on-site bio-energy plants for food and beverage production sites, will be showcasing its current projects at Edie Live and demonstrating a more circular approach to resource use on industrial sites.
Food processors can learn how to reduce fossil fuel bills and effluent disposal costs while eliminating off-site residue transport and reducing carbon emissions.
Clearfleau has secured further recognition for its innovative anaerobic digestion technology in the Resource Management category at the 2017 Edie Sustainability Leaders Awards. Its award-winning bio-energy plant installed on First Milk’s cheese factory in Cumbria is converting whey into biogas which, after upgrading to biomethane, is fed into the grid to supply the creamery and other local users.
In 2017, Clearfleau is entering an exciting period in its development, completing a plant on a vegetable processing site and building a second gas to grid plant on a major dairy site, as well as several projects that will treat distillery co-products. This shows the versatility of the on-site anaerobic digestion system and its range of industrial sites.
Decentralised bio-energy generation on food manufacturing sites can pay for itself in under 5 years. This technology challenges more traditional methods of handling liquid and solid production residues. Clearfleau’s plants handle all the bio-resides and co-products produced on food production sites with many producing under 500kW electrical output.
Clearfleau directors will be showcasing existing plants and others that are under construction at the event, from 23rd to 24th May 2017. We will be at stand L40.
