Green gas trimming carbon this Christmas

Green gas will be cooking your giblets this Christmas and for many festive seasons to come. Thanks to rapid growth this year, with a quadrupling of biomethane-to-grid plant numbers from 10 to 40, more households are cooking with home-grown green gas than ever before. Today the anaerobic digestion industry generates 31,000m3/hr…
