The conference includes four days of educational sessions, workshops, general sessions and special events, as well as hundreds of exhibits from throughout the solar value chain.

The establishment of the biogas plant is an essential component of the company's strategy to reduce energy costs.

(Germany, Vreden/Birmingham, 17.10.2014) PlanET Biogas UK Ltd. has recently commissioned their fifth Biogas plant into service. The 1.5 MW plant is situated on Singleton Birch's Ltd. site at Melton Ross, Barnetby, North Lincolnshire. In future, Singleton Birch Ltd, focussed on processing and delivery of limestone, will produce 40% of their onsite power requirements from biogas. Four local farmers are providing 30,000 tonnes of feedstock every year.


Singleton Birch Ltd. operates several lime works which process raw material for the building industry, agriculture and water supply and distribution. Martin Haworth, technical director at Singleton Birch Ltd., is delighted that the energy costs of 10 Million £ annual will soon be reduced. "Since the beginning of commissioning in March 2014 everything is working very well. It is running very, very well, according to plan, and was delivered on budget, on target, and we are very pleased with it. For the Humber Region this AD plant is a unique project in terms of energy management, which sustainably ensures economic efficiency and a competitive operation of our energy consuming lime businesses", reports Haworth.

The establishment of the biogas plant is an essential component of the company's strategy to reduce energy costs. Other important aspects are the newly gained independence from the electric supply mains and the aim to improve the CO2-results.

Sugar beet in substrate mixture

Manure, slurry, maize and sugar beet supplied from four local farmers, together with grass from the Humberside Airport are the basis for the substrate mixture of the 1,5 MW plant located at the East coast of England. The benefits of the 96 m PlanET Vario feeder incl. grass and muck package, the gas-storage system PlanET Flexstore as well as the efficient desulphurisation of the raw biogas with the PlanET eco® cover convinced the constituent during the conceptualization stage as the suitable technical solution for the digestion path. At the moment one assumes an annual energy output of 12,000 MWh.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
