is a leading independent UK company specialising in
developing, managing and operating Anaerobic Digestion (AD)
plants, which use a natural process to generate electricity. The company is now rolling out a £30 million investment to create the biggest Anaerobic Digestion ‘energy farming’ expansion programme in Britain.
The UK Government's vision is to see AD contribute up to
7.5% of the renewable energy needed to hit carbon reduction
targets set for 2020, providing a strong commercial
opportunity for farmers.
DEFRA (Dept for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs) sees
farmers as having a valuable role in helping to roll-out the
use of AD technology around the country.
The NFU (National Farmers' Union) believes as many as 1,000
farms could run AD plants, alongside a further 100
large-scale, commercial plants in which farmers may also
have an interest.
