enabling positive energy

Amur is at the forefront of the Anaerobic Digestion marketplace, dedicated to driving innovation and unlocking the potential of the industry. We help customers improve the performance of their facilities, by optimising gas yields and providing consistent, unsurpassed feedstock supply that drives industry standards.

Consistent, Quality Feedstocks

As part of AB Agri, we have a long history of servicing the food and drinks industry and a unique capability to procure and supply consistent, quality, feedstocks - in both short and long term contracts to suit our customers.

Our feedstocks range includes market leading brands in dry, liquid and moist form - suitable for crop, agricultural or waste permitted plants. We also mix food and green wastes to a specification giving plants security around gas production, dry matter content of the mix and contamination levels.

Our products are tested in live environments and are supported by robust data to give you confidence of their quality and performance.

We have also built, own and operate a 3MWe gas to grid AD plant so we understand the challenges you face in running a plant and the importance of maintaining consistent gas production.

Whatever your feedstock requirements are, be that: becoming less reliant on maize and other crops, reducing your de-packaging costs, securing long term feedstock contracts, growing your AD facility, advice for the future, or simply a review of your product mix to further optimise the performance of your plant, Amur can help.

Performance Enhancing Products

We have combined our years of nutritional experience and biological performance with MIAVIT to offer a select range of additives, minerals and trace elements, designed to help you get the most from your AD plant.

Whether that’s boosting plant performance, managing consistent gas yields or rescuing the plant from a recipe which hasn’t worked, we have a product which can help.

Our products are scientifically proven and with the support and expertise of our team, we can help you select the right product for your business, ensuring you get the best returns.

Our range is constantly evolving to offer you the latest, most effective choice of performance enhancing products to tackle the following problems:

Iron III Hydroxide- Oxide

Prevents the release of hydrogen sulphide gas, which is harmful to a CHP engine, by reacting with any hydrogen sulphide in the liquid to produce an insoluble salt which is discharged with the digestate.

MiaAmin Flex

Prevents bacterial inhibition and helps to reduce odours in digestate by binding to ammonium, in turn preventing free ammonia being formed at high pH's.

MiaMethan ProCut

Reduces the viscosity of the digester contents and can also reduce the retention time of your digester by breaking down the structure of fibrous feedstuffs and enabling the bacteria to maximise the biogas potential of, for example, lower quality forages.

MiaMethan SOS

Immediate relief of acidification in biogas plants. With a 100% success rate in plant recovery, it provides all the macronutrients and trace elements needed for your plant to make a full recovery.

MiaMethan Active

AD plants, just like you and I, need macronutrients and trace elements. Over time these become depleted and need replacing for healthy performance. Active offers a complete standard blend of the essentials for your AD plant to maintain good biomethane performance.

Tailormade: MiaMethan Flex

15 years of optimising biogas plant performance has enabled MIAVIT to identify the optimal mixture of macronutrients specifically for your AD plant. Individually blended for your own biogas plant, this product will ensure peak performance of your plant biology.

MiaMethan SOS

Immediate relief of acidification in biogas plants. With a 100% success rate in plant recovery, it provides all the macronutrients and trace elements needed for your plant to make a full recovery.

Tailormade: MiaMethan Kombi E

A unique blend of macronutrients and trace elements, combined with the power of the latest generation of AD Enzymes. This will ensure optimal biology for your plant, improved mixing ability and maximum output of your feedstocks.

We know that we are only as good as our customers' word. What we believe matters to us, what they say matters to you.

What our customers say

Robert Kennedy has been a pioneer of renewable energy since 2007. He is the owner of Strathendrick Biogas in Balfron, Glasgow and runs an AD plant at Claylands Farm, one of the UK’s first RHI-funded biogas plants.

Strathendrick Biogas selected Amur to help fuel the system. The plant has feedstock for the AD process on its doorstep from dairy farm cow slurry (supplied by the farmer), some grass silage and then a range of feedstocks supplied by Amur including distiller’s draff and pot ale syrup from local whisky distilleries.

I’ve always been involved with renewables and I really like doing business with Amur. The team has a strong renewable vision and recognises that nothing should be going to waste. There’s a lot of commonality between us, and the feedstocks they supply me with are of great quality. This means that the slurry and manure we make use of from the farm are perfectly complemented to provide maximum efficiency. It makes the whole operation much more viable knowing that I’ve got a reliable source of feedstock coming in regularly.

Part of my funding requirement when I was establishing the plant was to find a supplier capable of providing an agreed quantity of high quality feedstock. After building up a relationship with Amur from the start they’ve never failed to deliver. I’m happy to say I have a long-term contract with them which suits our needs perfectly.

Developing our own AD

We’re developing our own AD plant in North Yorkshire; the plant has been designed to take 60,000T of blended food and green waste, per annum. It is a gas to grid plant, enabling methane to be injected directly into the gas network for maximum carbon efficiency. If the plant were CHP, however, it would be equivalent to a 3MW facility.

Having our own AD plant means we understand the challenges facing AD Operators around feedstock availability, environmental legislation, sustainability reporting and policy, as just a few examples. This means we are well placed to be able to deliver helpful products and services for our customers. In addition we will use our own plant as a ‘testing’ ground and working example for our customers to visit.

We'd love to talk to you about your current or planned AD system. Supply your details below to find out how we can help you optimise your gas yields and get the best returns from your AD business venture.
