We’re an Anaerobic Digestion (AD) facility located in South Molton, Devon. Opened in 2015, our plant seeks to work in harmony with local agriculture and the surrounding communities. We process energy crops, agricultural waste and animal manures to produce biogas which is used to generate renewable electricity or gas. This renewable energy is injected into the gas and electricity grid from the plant, which is 1km from the town.
This plant utilises chicken manure and sustainable crops supplied by local farmers as its primary feedstock. Using high quality AD technology, the feedstock is broken down to produce biogas and digestate.
The digestate is high in nutrients and is a good replacement for artificial fertilisers. This is used on the land that supplies crops to the AD plant and greatly helps the farmers to reduce their greenhouse gasses and carbon footprint.
