Anaerobic Digestion Study: Update
Posted Thursday, October 15, 2009
The first two stages of our specially commissioned full feasibility study into Anaerobic Digestion (AD) in the Bradford Valley have been completed. The £45,000 study is being carried out by Methanogen and Associates and is funded by the Peak District National Park’s Sustainable Development Fund and the East Midlands Development Agency, plus a small contribution from Sustainable Youlgrave’s own reserves.
The study, which has included interviews with as many as 40 local farms and meetings with various local authorities and specialists, is looking into the viability of AD at different scales and has been assessing various economic and technical factors, availability of waste products, and so on. When the full study is complete we will make the findings available, including a generic element that we hope will be of use to other communities considering the feasibility of AD in their own area.
