Clearfleau, one of the leading British providers of on-site renewable energy technology, is delighted to have been shortlisted for two additional international awards. It is a great achievement for an emerging British engineering company to be shortlisted alongside projects submitted by leading universities and major international companies. We await the results with our fingers firmly crossed.
The Business Green Technology Award – Circular Economy
Clearfleau is a finalist in the Business Green Technology International Awards under the Circular Economy category. Judges are looking for the most highly-innovative new technology that promises to deliver the most exciting circular economy development. Our entry focused on our bio-energy plant built and operated by us for Lake District Biogas, where bio-energy is generated from bio-degradable cheese production residues.
Not only one of Britain’s most advanced on-site AD plants, it is the first on-site AD plant in the dairy industry in Europe to feed bio-methane to the gas grid, generated exclusively by digesting its cheese making residues. The plant already delivers tangible environmental gains in terms of reduced resource use and other environmental benefits. Winners are to be announced on 2 December 2016.

Richard Gueterbock, Clearfleau’s Marketing Director said:
“We are delighted our most complex on-site bio-energy project has been selected in the finals of these important international awards. Our focus is on working with global brands and British food and beverage manufacturers, helping them to recycle more water, reduce costs, save energy, cut carbon emissions and generate value from unwanted process residues. This project is a great example of the circular economy in practice, producing 3 outputs: cleansed water, nutrient rich bio-solids and bio-energy for the manufacture of cheese.”
It’s an exciting time for Clearfleau. The company is also a finalist in the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) Global Awards, the results of which are to be announced at The Palace Hotel, Manchester on 3 November 2016.
