Future Biogas Ltd is one of the leading developers, builders and operators of Anaerobic Digestation plants in the UK. Using proven technology, the company has grown significantly over the last 3 years having commissioned their first Biogas plant in Norfolk in 2011 and their 2nd Norfolk plant in February this year. Future Biogas Ltd have a further 2 plants due to be built and commissioned by summer 2013 as well as a number of sites across the country at planning stage for 2013 and 2014.
