The Ixora managed Anaerobic Digestion (AD) facilities are based in the South West of England and Norfolk. They are predominately farm based and use a range of agricultural feedstocks which include farm waste, manure and sustainably grown crops. Using high quality AD technology provided by Marches Biogas Limited and Biogest Energie the feedstock is broken down to produce biogas and digestate.  The biogas is used to generate and export renewable electricity to the National Grid or is upgraded and injected directly into the UK’s gas network. The digestate is high in nutrients and a good replacement for artificial fertilisers. It is used on all of the land that supplies crop to the AD plants.
