What is Anaerobic Digestion?
Anaerobic Digestion (AD) is a natural process whereby organic material, is broken down by micro-organisms in the absence of air. The origins of AD can be traced back hundreds of years but recent advances in technology have seen a rapid increase in the number of commercial AD plants, not only in Europe, but the UK. AD plants can utilise a range of feedstocks including: food waste, manures and energy crops. By far the most efficient feedstock in terms of energy conversion is energy crops. Put simply energy produced is a direct result of energy put in.
Working in partnership with the UK's largest crop fed AD plant we supply a year round supply of high quality feedstock, allowing the plant to run more productively and efficiently.
