New U.K. Bio-Energy Plant Converts Feedstock Into Electricity To Make Nestle Candy

December 24, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
A year-old U.K. bio-energy plant built by Clearfleau for Nestlé’s Fawdon confectionery factory is converting 200,000 liters of feedstock a day into renewable energy. The feedstock includes wash waters from the site and 1,200 tons of residual biproducts and ingredients a year. The biogas produced is fueling a combined heat and power (CHP) engine that produces 200 kilowatts of electricity used to make candy. Residues from Fawdon, the former Rowntree factory, used to be discharged into the sewer or fed to pigs in the locality.
