The article reports on the plan to supply 500 homes in Manchester, England with biogas produced from wastewater sludge within two years. National Grid and United Utilities have begun work on a pioneering project centred on United's Davyhulme wastewater treatment works. The pilot scheme aims to use anaerobic digestion to produce biomethane for injection into the local gas grid and as fuel for a fleet of sludge tankers.
