Chesterfield BioGas wins upgrading plant contract


Chesterfield BioGas Ltd (CBG) has today secured a contract to supply and install upgrading equipment for the UK’s latest project to use gas from renewable waste resources and inject it directly into the national gas grid.

The contract win is seen as a good deal for the company, a subsidiary of Pressure Technologies plc (PT).

The system in Stockport, like the first successful UK venture of its kind in Didcot which opened in October 2010, will feature, at its heart, an upgrading unit designed and manufactured by CBG’s partner, Greenlane® Biogas of New Zealand.
