Green Energy from Cumbrian Cheese

The plant at LDB has been designed and built by Clearfleau the UK market leader in industrial anaerobic digestion, whose innovative on-site digestion plants facilitate renewable energy recovery from production residues in the food, beverage and biofuel sectors.


Lake District Biogas Ltd (LDB) have developed an on-site Anaerobic Digestion plant to generate renewable energy at the Lake District Creamery at Aspatria (Cumbria) which is owned by the leading dairy cooperative First Milk.  This innovative new plant utilises production residues and by-products from the dairy to generate biogas which is converted into bio-methane and then fed into the local gas grid.

LDB has made a major investment on the site which will provide an economic boost to the area, the local farms that supply milk, as well as the local community through the local economic value and employment the creamery provides.
