Bio Capital

Bio Capital is a market leader in the ownership and operation of Anaerobic Digestion (“AD”) facilities.

Bio Capital is a 50:50 joint venture between Equitix and Helios Energy Investments. It acquired its first AD facility in 2018 and continue to grow both through organic development of existing assets and through the acquisition of new facilities. There are now a total of 8 assets located on separate sites with the UK (3 in Scotland, 4 in England, and 1 in Northern Ireland), and a combined workforce of over 130 people.

The UK produces over 10 million tonnes of food waste annually, and the energy generated from the process of AD is important in reducing the reliance on fossil fuels. AD provides a very useful solution to the issue of food waste, which in turn is a major contributor to the net zero agenda and the circular economy.
