Bioenergy Infrastructure Group (BIG)
Bio Capital Ltd
Aurium is a lead sponsor of Bio Capital Ltd, along with Helios Energy Investments and Equitix Ltd.
Bio Capital is a new dedicated business with a focused strategy to invest in renewable energy plants which use anaerobic digestion ("AD") technology. The aim is to aggregate a portfolio of AD plants in the UK and Ireland, targeting both gas-to-grid and electricity generation facilities that utilise food-waste and agri-feedstock fuel sources. Bio Capital will consider either operational or greenfield assets.
The business has already completed its first acquisition, being the largest operational food waste AD plant in Scotland - Energen Biogas (www.energenbiogas.co.uk) - which processes 120,000 tonnes of food waste per annum and generates 33GWh of electricity and 44GWh of biogas annually.
Bio Capital is actively working on a pipeline of several other projects.
