Anaergia’s subsidiary Anaergia Africa Proprietary has been selected by Bio2Watt to operate a commercial biogas plant in Bronkhorstspruit, South Africa.

Bio2Watt’s Bronkhorstspruit plant converts agricultural and other organic waste into electricity.

The plant, which has a capacity to produce 4.6MW of electricity, is already connected to the grid.

Bio2Watt managing director Sean Thomas said: “Anaergia’s unparalleled technical capabilities and international experience led to the decision to appoint this company.

“We are thrilled to be able to tap into this expertise, to help us achieve the highest safety and reliability standards at the Bronkhorstspruit plant.”

Anaergia Africa Proprietary has already started operating the Bio2Watt biogas plant from 18 July, 2016.

Anaergia CEO Andrew Benedek said: “We believe that there are tremendous opportunities to convert organic waste into clean energy in Africa.  We are especially pleased to be working with Bio2Watt as it pioneers the conversion of agricultural waste streams into reliable renewable energy.”
