Bioliquids uptake will be 'modest', report finds

Bioliquids uptake will be 'modest', report finds
Bioliquids have the potential to provide four percent of renewable energy and six percent of renewable heat by 2020 even if uptake is low, a new report suggests.

Conducted by the NNFCC, the report says uptake of bioliquids in the next decade is likely to be modest because of uncertainties surrounding their availability.

Further barriers are presented by the policy framework in place, the underdeveloped supply chain, fuel cost uncertainty and the perception of members of the general public about their use. Bioliquids were said to be best suited to smaller-scale combined heat and power installations.

The findings are now being used in a review of the bands in place for the Renewables Obligation being carried out by the Department of Energy and Climate Change.

"Support should be given to applications which offer good GHG [greenhouse gas] savings potential, a technologically effective solution to onsite generation needs, or fill the gap where other renewable technologies are not viable," lead author Fiona McDermott said.

Under the current support provided by the government, those using bioliquids are exempt from paying duty.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800453755-ADNFCR
