This paper on Anaerobic Digestion Deployment was presented to the Renewable Energy Association Biogas Group on 1st December 2014. It presents analysis from NNFCC’s AD Deployment report, illustrating recent trends, current status and future expectations of the AD industry in the UK. The analysis details the number and capacity of plants, by region, scale and type. Currently there are 157 operational plants and 415 plants in the development pipeline, all of which are included in this analysis.

  3. 3. Copyright © NNFCC 2014. AD Deployment in the UK Definitions Plant scale •Small scale refers to installations with an installed capacity of 250kWe and below. •Medium scale refers to installations with an installed capacity of above 250kWe to 500kWe. •Large scale refers to installations with an installed capacity of above 500kWe. Plant type •Waste-fed refers to installations where the contribution of municipal (e.g. food waste; green waste), commercial (e.g. food waste) and industrial wastes (e.g. brewery waste; animal processing wastes) towards the total feedstock requirement is greater than 50%. •Farm-fed refers to installations where the contribution of farm-based feedstocks (e.g. manure; slurry; energy crops; crop wastes) towards the total feedstock requirement is greater than 50%.

  13. 13. Copyright © NNFCC 2014. AD Deployment in the UK Projected feedstock requirements •Balance of feedstock in projections changed noticeably over the last 6 months – Food waste projections increased by under 200,000 tpa –‘Other’ waste projections increased by 400,000 tpa –Manure projections increased by just over 400,000 tpa –Crop projections increased by almost 1.2 million tpa
  14. 14. Copyright © NNFCC 2014. AD Deployment in the UK Food waste •New report from Eunomia suggests the UK is near capacity with regards to volumes of available food waste entering AD •NNFCC data provides further evidence for this notion © Eunomia Research & Consulting; 2014
  15. 15. Copyright © NNFCC 2014. AD Deployment in the UK Energy crops •Large growth in anticipated demand for energy crops in AD •Largely on account of the initiation of a number of very large scale crop- only projects in the East Midland and East of England •Possible reasons: –Large scale AD developers attracted towards crop feedstock as food waste approaches capacity –FiT degression for small and medium scale AD has encouraged farm- based AD developers to consider larger scales than initially envisaged –Biomethane-to-grid now becoming very attractive at scale

AD Deployment in the UK Required cropland •Assuming an energy crop yield of 45 fresh tonnes/Ha the UK AD industry requires 19,500 Ha of land •If all plants under development were to complete the UK AD industry would require 86,000 Ha of land (1.5% of UK crop land) •Break crops often used for AD © NNFCC
  17. 17. Copyright © NNFCC 2014. AD Deployment in the UK Summary and future development •Development pipeline remains strong despite FiT degression earlier in the year •However, considerable challenges ahead for both the agriculture and food waste AD sectors •Improved utilisation of slurries/manures, especially from poultry sector, could support increased deployment •RHI could become a more stable form of support in the future and result in further BtG deployment
