Advanced biofuel developer Advanced Biofuel Solutions Ltd (ABSL) has partnered with waste-based biofuel manufacturer Greenergy to develop five municipal waste-based biofuel plants, which could see 800,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) saved per year.

Located at Ellesmere Port near Liverpool, the partner’s first plant intends to convert 133,000 tonnes of municipal waste into biomethane and biohydrogen using ABSL’s patented RadGas technology.

Aiming to replace petrol and diesel transport fuels, the output of the five plants will be the equivalent to powering 5,000 HGVs, saving 800,000 tonnes of CO2 annually.

Stating that the announcement enables ABSL to ‘accelerate significantly’ the deployment of its RadGas technology, Nathan Burkey, Executive Chairman, ABSL, added, “The partnership brings together cutting-edge technology with the experience of large-scale fuel production and distribution to produce low carbon fuels for transport critical to achieving net zero.”

With the first plant currently being designed, production of biomethane is slated for 2025.
