We recently had the pleasure of welcoming international visitors to our Condate Biogas anaerobic digestion (AD) plant. The South Molton Twinning Association brought their counterparts, all the way from Livarot in France, for an informative site tour.

With over 40 attendees, plus the language barrier, it took multilingual organisation from our dedicated team to make the visit a success. Thank you to everyone involved, especially the Sing family who kindly helped create translated handouts for our French guests.

Powering South Molton with renewable energy

The tour provided a valuable opportunity to showcase how South Molton is at the forefront of the transition to Net Zero. Our Condate Biogas plant provides green gas to meet almost 100% of the town’s gas needs, as well as renewable electricity to power over 900 homes. This makes South Molton a model of local energy production. Since the energy from AD is generated locally and directly supplied to neighbouring homes, it offers a sustainable alternative to importing fossil fuels. It also plays its part in helping to reduce the turbulence in the energy price market.

Supporting communities

Building strong relationships with the community surrounding our AD plants is important to us. At Condate Biogas, we are proud sponsors of local initiatives such as South Molton in Bloom. We also sponsor Emma Sing, a homegrown South Molton rugby star who now plays for the England Red Roses team.

 “The visit and tour was a great success and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone, both from South Molton and our guests from Livarot, France. We received lots of positive comments and feedback, so a big, big thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make this visit happen.” – South Molton Twinning Association
