Major Meat processing giant, ABP, have announced that they will open a new green energy plant.

ABP, one of the country’s leading meat processors, have announced that they will open a new green energy plant in the UK.

The development is set to cost in the region of €24.5 million and will produce enough energy to power over 12,000 residents. The new facility will be open in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire in the UK. It will also work in lieu with Arla, to help it become a processing facility with zero carbon footprint.

The new facility will be open in lieu with Olleco, with their managing director describing the news as “excellent”. He said the new facility will enable the company to convert over 100,000 tonnes of waste into heat, bio-methane and power for exportation. He said the power will be sold to the national grid, whilst any bio-fertilisers will be used by ABP and Arla’s supplier farmers.

This latest news is not the only investment to be taken by ABP this year, with their deal to purchase a majority stake in Linden Foods ratified in recent weeks. The deal saw ABP take a majority stake in the company, following its ratification. This latest move see's Larry Goodman further develop his beef empire.
