we are working with several clients on farm and estate anaerobic digestion projects - a process which converts waste products into heat and power.
Anaerobic digestion is the process which converts organic matter into biogas and then heat & power.
The organic matter feedstocks can be farm wastes such as slurry & manure, energy crops such as maize & grass silage or other wastes from food processing and production such as fruit & vegetables.
The heat & electricity produced may be used on the farm or estate to provide energy to existing businesses such as broiler units, pack houses and property. Surplus electricity can be exported to the National Grid. One of the advantages of anaerobic digestion is the by product – a digestate that is a useful organic fertiliser which can be used on crops.
We are working with many clients on anaerobic digestion projects ranging from 125Kw small scales ones to several Mw gas to grid projects. Our services include:
- feasibility studies
- due diligence reports for banks and finance providers
- joint ventures
- lease agreements
- planning permission
- project management.
The articles and case studies below give an insight into some of our work. However to discuss your project further please contact David Kinnersley.
