Home Farm Biogas

Deal Overview

Home Farm Biogas is a joint venture company between Iona and a family run organic farm in North Yorkshire. This was Iona’s third investment in the smaller scale farm based AD market. 

The plant has been designed and built by Anaergia and Surgo Construction. The farm supplies the feedstock from existing farm wastes such as manure and slurry, supplemented with organic energy crops. The plant generates 200Kw per hour of renewable electricity from the anaerobic digestion process, receiving income under the Feed in Tariff Scheme, with the electricity being used on the farm and sold to the National Grid.  The farm utilises the heat from the plant and the use of the digestate bi-product on the land as a bio-fertiliser. 


Operator

The plant is operated by Advantage Biogas Limited (“Advantage”). Advantage provides support services to Biogas plants in the UK focusing on routine maintenance, health and safety reports, plant optimisation and biological services.
