The UK's first commercial plant to convert household waste into bio-substitute natural gas (BioSNG) is currently under construction in Swindon.

Due to open in early 2018, the £25m facility will process 10,000 tonnes of household waste per year, producing 22 GWh of BioSNG.

It was developed by biomass and material handling specialist Saxlund International and has received £11m of funding from the Department for Transport’s Advanced Biofuels Demonstration Competition.

Matt Drew, managing director for Saxlund Internation, said: “Producing 80% lower carbon emissions than fossil gas, BioSNG is recognised as being key to decarbonising heat and transport in the UK and internationally.

“We are delighted to be involved with this pioneering project at Marston Gate.”
