Recent Projects

  • MIN-NO Project Report published - The Final Report of this long term project - Minimising Nitrous Oxide Intensities of Arable Crop products - in which North Energy were one of 23 partners, has been published by ADHB (Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board ( Led by agricultural and environmental consultancy ADAS (, the collaborative project was conducted from 2009 to 2014 involving partners from government, industry and academia, including Rothamsted Research, British Sugar, the Renewable Energy Association and Vivergo Fuels Ltd.
      The report provided evidence of direct N2O emissions due to major UK arable crops, and suggested better means of estimating and mitigating these and other greenhouse gas emissions associated with arable crop products. North Energy undertook the evaluation of baseline greenhouse gas emissions for biofuels, cooking oil and sugar, along with the statistical analysis of farm-level datasets which enabled the variability of greenhouse gas emissions for crops and their products to be determined.
        The work was sponsored through the Defra Sustainable Arable LINK programme (LK09128) including funding from HGCA now AHDB Cereals and Oilseeds. The report is available to download from ADHB.


      Wetlands Biomass Project

      Wetlands Biomass Project2015-05-15: The Wetlands Biomass to Bioenergy Project investigated three options to increase the availability of renewable, sustainable bioenergy whilst addressing the challenges of wetland management. It has supported the trial of mechanical harvesting techniques combined with a range of innovative storage solutions and conversion technologies including anaerobic digestion, bio-charring and briquetting. The project has been supported by DECC, with North Energy working with the 3 participant companies and the RSPB to carry out Life Cycle Assessments of the energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions of the options investigated.
