The leader of Dudley Council visits local business Biogas

Council leader visits Brierley Hill business

The leader of Dudley Council has praised the exciting work of a local manufacturing business following a visit to its Dudley borough premises today.

Biogas Products Limited specialises in the design and build of biogas production, storage, cleaning and utilisation through anaerobic digestion - a natural process that produces methane when natural waste decomposes.

The engineering company employs 16 people at its Dudley units, which are located on the Cookley Wharf Industrial Estate in Brierley Hill.

It was established more than 15 years ago by local businessman Tony Smith, who owns the business in conjunction with his business partner Martin Newey. Tony’s son Kurt Smith and colleague Matt Willetts are the operational managers, overseeing day to day running of the business.

Councillor Patrick Harley, leader of Dudley Council, said:

As part of Dudley Council’s Made in Dudley Borough business support programme, I am delighted to have visited Biogas Products today.
The company is using revolutionary technology and has invested in new machinery to increase its productivity, while reducing carbon footprint.
Tony Smith, Managing Director at Biogas, said:

We were delighted to welcome Dudley Council’s leader to our offices and fabrication workshop in Dudley today.
It was great for him to be able to see some of the work we are doing for our clients in the water, farming and manufacturing industries, to create sustainable energy through the process of anaerobic digestion.
Renewable energy plays a pivotal role in creating a more sustainable future and it was great to hear how the council supports our work, we look forward to working with the authority to continue to grow our business and create further employment opportunities for local people.
