ADBA launches free farmers' advisory service at Energy Now Expo
Today the Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Association (ADBA) launches its new farmers' consultancy service at the Energy Now Expo. The service, which is free of charge, will help farmers and landowners decide whether AD is a viable option for them to consider.
Farm-based anaerobic digestion (AD) presents an opportunity for UK 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.
Gwyn Jones, president of the National Farmers Union and ADBA board member 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."
ADBA's chief executive Charlotte Morton said: "Farming is crucial to supporting the British economy and providing the food we need. Today's farmers are facing a tough economic climate made even more challenging by soaring energy, fertiliser and transport costs. AD not only helps farmers to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by reducing dependence on commercial fertilisers and traditional transport fuels and energy consumption, but also helps keep farmers farming.
ADBA has launched this free service to give farmers, growers and land managers a better understanding of what is involved, giving them the confident to invest the time and money needed to develop a project proposal for funding.
AD enables farmers to make the best use of their resources, grow their businesses and protect the sustainability of British farming in the long term".
If you are interested in finding out more please visit ADBA at Energy Now stand no.3, where ADBA staff will be on hand to explain the details of the service and how to apply. For further information send an enquiry to us.
