90 New Jobs for Donegal with Bioenergy firm

A Donegal Bio energy firm, Connective Energy Holdings Limited, has announced the creation of 90 new jobs over the next two years in its bio gas production plants across the country.

15 of the new jobs will be created at one of the company's digestion facilities in the Glenmore Estate in Aghaveagh, Co. Donegal, when it opens later this year.

The company says it will employ up to 90 people within the next two years with the creation of two more facilities in Co. Dublin and Co. Down later this year, and three additional plants next year.

Each anaerobic digestion facility will take in around 90,000 tonnes of organic material such as farm slurry, poultry litter and manure and convert this material into bio gas to be used as a fuel and CO2, used in the food and drinks industry.

Speaking at the announcement,  Mr Brendan McSorley, Development Manager of Connective Energy Holdings Limited said that “these anaerobic digesters will each produce enough biogas to run a 4 MW power plant – enough to power over 1,700 homes via renewable energy. As the CO2 will be removed and recycled as a food product, the biogas used as a fuel and the remaining clean organic fertiliser material used as a soil conditioner, this means that the process is very environmentally friendly as it recycles all of the material it takes in.”
