Due to Covid restrictions, we haven’t been able to enjoy as much cider with friends and family throughout 2020 as we would’ve liked. With their usual outlet for apple products affected, C&C Group plc decided to use them for the next best thing: energy.
We took delivery of C&C Group’s surplus apple products and turned them into energy through application of our expert AD biology. These have already produced enough biomethane to supply over 300 homes with renewable gas for the next 12 months. We are now 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. Every cloud has a silver lining.
