The biogas plant in Northern Ireland, Tully Quarry, close to the town of Ballymena, is currently producing biogas from 100 per cent chicken litter. At the awards ceremony Sustainable Ireland Awards, the unique Xergi project won the award for the year's best project in the energy production category.
It was a very excited director, Kevin Fitzduff, from the company Stream BioEnergy Ltd, who received the award "Best Energy Generation Award" when the year's most sustainable projects on the Irish island were in the spotlight at the awards ceremony at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Belfast.
The awards ceremony is organised by the magazine Sustainable Ireland, which focuses on sustainable solutions on the Irish island.
"It has taken eight years to put the project together, and I'm very pleased that we finally got the plant up and running. We are producing energy now, and we are very pleased that we were nominated," said Kevin Fitzduff at the awards ceremony.
