  • Downing is a London-based investment company who were seeking to deliver a portfolio of renewable energy projects across the UK.
  • A key aspect of this investment involved identifying a team who could deliver several AD projects simultaneously.
  • These projects were at the concept stage and required taking from design into full operation.
  • Downing’s plant now consistently runs at the designed 1,000m3/hour biogas output with an availability of 98%.

Cutting Food Miles and Reaching Net Zero: AD Benefits for Food Production

  • Barber’s needed a consistent outlet to ensure production of cheese can be maintained (they were previously having to send lactose many miles away).
  • Ixora’s sites are local to Barber’s factory, considerably reducing their food miles.
  • Barber’s lactose has generated enough green gas to heat over 1,300 UK homes.
  • This green gas has saved over 2,400 tonnes of CO2 in the past year alone.

  • We are also seeing the bio-fertiliser from these apple products displacing fossil fuel fertiliser, allowing local farmers to grow potatoes, wheat, and vegetables across an area that’s the same size as 200 football pitches.
