Quantum Power 'build-own-operate' biogas plants for food processors

Monday, 11 August, 2014 | Supplied by: Quantum BioEnergy Limited


Biogas projects enable food processors and other agribusinesses to turn on-site waste streams into a valuable energy resource. Quantum Power has developed a ‘build-own-operate’ model that makes biogas plants available without the need for upfront capital from the processor.

Under the model, Quantum Power builds plants that convert the business’s organic waste to a bioenergy supply that is used to power its operations. The company agrees to purchase the generated power at a discount to grid-supplied electricity for a specified time. This reduces the business’s power bills and reduces costs associated with organic waste disposal.

Generating on-site energy using renewable sources also reduces network upgrades to satisfy electricity demand and provides significant opportunities for waste management and a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

According to the company, the advantage of biogas-fuelled generation over wind and solar is that it’s not reliant on weather conditions for performance, and it is therefore able to produce a consistent power output, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
