BRAN SANDS, REDCAR
Northumbrian Water is using innovative technology to generate electricity from waste products through advanced anaerobic digestion (AAD) at Bran Sands at Tees Port. The firm said the plant could produce enough gas to supply demand from 5,000 homes.
Biogas released by bacteria digesting the sewage sludge is currently used to fuel engines to create electricity, which Northumbria Water says reduces the company’s carbon footprint by 20%.
