Anaerobic Digester gets the green light to power Thomas Swan site

Renewable energy is coming to the Thomas Swan site in Consett, which the company has occupied since 1926. Plans for a new Anaerobic Digester plant have now been approved, with all parties signed up and work on the project, believed to be the first of its kind in the UK for a chemicals company, already underway. The new sustainable power plant, will stabilise electricity costs for one of the area’s leading employers and provide a safe, unobtrusive source of energy which uses maize and grass silage produced by farms in the region.
