CIP enters into partnership with Atlas for the development of biogas plants throughout Ireland

Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP), through its bioenergy fund, has announced a partnership with Atlas Renewables and Energex Partners to develop biogas plants across Ireland, focusing primarily on using manure as feedstock. 

CIP’s CI Advanced Bioenergy Fund I (CI ABF I) and its partners have established Greengate Biogas, a joint venture aimed at developing, constructing, and operating biogas plants fueled by manure. Greengate Biogas combines CI ABF I’s expertise in large-scale biomethane plant development across Europe with the local knowledge of Atlas Renewables and Energex Partners in bioenergy and agricultural practices in Ireland.

Once fully operational, Greengate Biogas is projected to produce nearly 1.8 TWh/year of biomethane through multiple projects. This output will fulfill about 3.5% of Ireland’s current natural gas demand and contribute towards 30% of the country’s biomethane target for 2030, as outlined in Ireland’s recently published biomethane strategy, according to CIF.

The biogas generated will be injected into the national grid, and organic fertilisers will be returned to farmers, supporting Ireland’s circular economy and green transition. These biogas plants will primarily use manure as feedstock, sourced in collaboration with over 2,000 livestock farmers nationwide. By employing anaerobic digestion for manure management, Greengate Biogas aims to mitigate emissions from the agricultural sector and address nitrate challenges.

In a separate development, last month CIP also finalized an agreement with KK Invest and DBC Invest to acquire a majority stake in the Sindal Biogas plant in Denmark, thereby expanding its biogas portfolio further.
