GreenGas AD Plant (trade name of McDonnell Farms Biogas Limited) is a farm based anaerobic digestion facility.  Located outside Shanagolden in Co. Limerick adjacent to the family farm, Greengas AD Plant has recently become operational having progressed through the final stages of testing and validation with the Department of Agriculture.  The plant processes dairy and poultry manure and imported feedstock such as hatchery waste and dairy sludge.  The biogas produced in the anaerobic digestion process is used as fuel in a CHP Unit.  The resultant electricity produced is sold to the national grid and the heat generated recycled for heating use in both Plant and the nearby poultry enterprise.  The processed digestate is used on local farm land as a high quality eco fertiliser.
