H2 Energy Installs Bio-Refinery for waste Animal By-Products & Blood06 October 2014
H2 Energy have installed a new multi stage Bio-Refinery research unit costing £450,000; specifically designed and developed to operate on 100% animal by-products and blood waste.
The Bio-Refinery will initially process CAT3 poultry blood, with the second phase processing CAT 2 'fallen stock' through a sterilisation by pressure process developed and manufactured at the Company's Liverpool Factory. The research unit is capable of handling 1,000 kg per day and has been developed in partnership with Bosch Rexroth. The 3 month project will provide biochemical and microbiological data for processing many different types of animal wastes, which currently costs the food and agricultural industries substantial amounts in disposal costs. It is envisaged that a 10 tonne / day blood plant will produce over 3,000 Mega Watts of electricity and 3,000 Mega Watts of thermal energy each year for the food processing company.
