The Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Association (ADBA) has launched a free consultancy service for farmers in the UK in a bid to help them understand the potential opportunities for creating revenue and reducing greenhouse emissions.

The process of anaerobic digestion breaks down waste and generates energy as a by-product. As simple as it sounds, ADBA says there can be confusion when determining how suitable it is for some properties and this can be a barrier for some people.

Gwyn Jones, President of the National Farmers Union said: “AD is a pivotal mechanism in supporting climate smart farming but the viability of AD for a particular business or site is a complex equation and so it’s 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 anaerobic digestion is right for your business.”
