A well-managed ANAEROBIC DIGESTION system will aim to maximise methane production, but not release any gases to the atmosphere, thereby reducing overall emissions.
ANAEROBIC DIGESTION also provides a source of energy with no net increase in atmospheric carbon which contributes to climate change.Energy generated through the AD process can help reduce the demand for fossil fuels.
ANAEROBIC DIGESTION creates an integrated management system which reduces the likelihood of soil and water pollution occurring, compared to disposal of untreated animal manure / slurries.
A financial advantage of ANAEROBIC DIGESTION is the conversion of residues into potentially saleable products: biogas, soil conditioner, liquid fertiliser.
These are just a few the the advantages of AD. We have updated our Advantages and Disadvantages of Anaerobic Digestion page. We suggest a visit to read more.
