With rising energy bills and stricter regulations on the storage of muck and slurry, together with the introduction of the Feed-in Tariff (FIT) and Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), Anaerobic Digestion technology is attracting interest from a number of parties as a way to diversify income and deal with existing waste streams.
Anaerobic Digestion, unlike some other renewable technologies, produces both electricity and heat bringing the following benefits:
Fits in well with existing farm activities, providing by-products (liquid and solid digestate) which can be used on-farm or sold as a nutrient rich fertiliser
FIT payments for every unit of renewable electricity generated providing an attractive, long term (20 year) income stream
RHI payments per kWh of heat generated providing an attractive, long term (20 year) income stream
Protect against rising electricity bills
Added value to existing waste streams
The production of renewable energy will offset and reduce your carbon footprint, increasing green credentials for future contracts and marketing.
