Tamar Energy – Not Letting the Future go to Waste

Tamar Energy | Not Letting the Future go to Waste

Tamar Energy is a renewable energy business, focusing on anaerobic digestion and offering a range of composting services. They are building a network of facilities around the UK, to generate 100MW of renewable energy through the cost-effective, sustainable treatment of organic waste.

Anaerobic digestion (AD) is a series of natural biological processes whereby organic waste material – known as feedstock – is broken down by micro-organisms and converted into energy, known as biogas (a mixture of carbon dioxide and methane).

The biogas is used in a combined heat and power plant or cleansed of carbon dioxide and injected into the National Grid.

A by-product of the AD process is digestate. Digestate is a stable, nutrient-rich substance that is most commonly used as a renewable fertiliser or a soil conditioner.
