Northern Ireland biomethane-to-grid project to launch this year


SGN Natural Gas and Bio Capital are collaborating on the first biomethane-to-gas-grid project which aims to launch in Northern Ireland this year.

Biomethane can be used as a direct replacement for traditional natural gas in the existing gas network infrastructure, which allows for a seamless transition to a Net Zero carbon energy source. Biomethane is produced from organic waste materials such as agricultural and food waste.

David McKee, Chief Technical Officer, Bio Capital, said: “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with SGN Natural Gas on the first biomethane to grid project in Northern Ireland that will tangibly benefit the environment. Our company is passionate about the effective delivery of a circular economy approach designed to eliminate waste in businesses and in society as a whole. Pioneering ideas such as this will play a key role in realising the ambitions of the Energy Strategy for Northern Ireland.”

In 2018, Granville Eco Park secured a Sustainable Ireland Award for Circular Economy Leadership, and in 2020 received the prestigious ‘Best Small to Medium Biogas Plant’ by the Anaerobic Digestion & Bioresources Association. In 2021 the company was awarded a special recognition for climate action in the Belfast Telegraph Business Awards.
