Thames Water & SGN unite for biogas set ups: Thames Water has presented a £70 million agreement to SGN Commercial Services to set up biogas processing installations at its wastewater treatment facilities.

The 1st project in the 8 year contract is situated at Thames Water’s Deephams sewage treatment location in Edmonton, North London.

Sewage will be used to produce biomethane as a heat & power substitute, which will help balance out over 8,000 tonnes of CO2 from going into the atmosphere every year.

The £7.3 million scheme is anticipated to be finished in March next year and is predicted to make 6 million cubic metres of methane yearly.

This is sufficient to heat 3,500 homes in Enfield in North London, SGN Commercial Services announced.

Francis Paonessa, Capital Delivery Director at Thames Water, stated: “Installing this new technology means we can give back to our communities by using the leftover gas from our sewage treatment process to heat local homes with renewable energy.

“It will help in our plans to become a carbon negative business by 2040 with the first milestone – net zero 2030.”
