MYTH: Anaerobic digestion creates increased traffic and disruption in local communities.
This is the most common misconception about AD. AD plants are often situated on agricultural land, as this is the most beneficial location for our feedstock providers who tend to be farmers and small, rural businesses. This helps cut travel costs and allows farmers to make profit from their waste.
Prior to AD plants, farmers had to remove their waste, (often via large lorries or tractors), to a landfill or similar facility that could be miles away. Instead, AD diverts the waste to a different place, which is usually just a short trip down the road.
