Free AD consultancy for farmers

The Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Association (ADBA) has launched a free consultancy for farmers considering whether AD is a viable option for their business.

AD is said to present an opportunity for farmers, growers and land managers to improve yields, create a new income stream and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by generating their own renewable energy and biofertilisers.

ADBA chief executive Charlotte Morton said: “Today’s farmers are facing a tough economic climate, made even more challenging by soaring energy, fertiliser and transport costs.

“ADBA has launched this free service to give farmers, growers and land managers a better understanding of what is involved, giving them the confidence to invest the time and money needed to develop a project proposal for funding.”

Gwyn Jones, president of the National Farmers’ Union and ADBA board member, said: “The viability of AD for a particular business or site is a complex equation, so it is important that people receive good quality initial advice to help assess its feasibility.

“ADBA’s free farmers’ consultancy service is a good start in helping farmers find out if AD is right for their business.”
