Anearobic digestion is where bacteria breaks down organic matter to produce biogas and biofertliser. The happens in a controlled environemnt under the absense of oxygen - within an sealed dome called an Anearobic digester.
The organic matter that we place into our Anearobic digester is; chicken litter, maize silage, grass silage, horse manure, waste potatoes and fodder beet. In tern this produces renewable electric and renewable heat which is used to power our farm. The by product of the process is digestate which is a solid and liquid matter that has a high nutrient content we use this as a natural fertiliser on our crops.
As a farm we produce spare electric which goes into the National grid and it is
equivalent of enough electric to power 1,000 homes for 24 hours a day.
