Study tour offers farmers energy saving advice

Livestock farmers will get the chance to see how they can reduce waste and energy costs through anaerobic digestion (AD) during a study tour in Ludlow, Shropshire on 14 November 2013.

The tour has been organised by Nextgen, in association with Evergreen Gas and Marches Biogas, and aims to show farmers how on-farm AD technology can benefit their businesses, providing them with cheaper energy, reduced costs and new low-carbon revenue streams.

Delegates will hear from AD industry experts and tour two different sites. They will also be given information on the different uses and opportunities for on-farm AD, factors critical to delivering success on AD projects, options for financing AD and how to successfully manage an AD plant.

Nextgen event director Chris Down, said: “We have put this study tour together particularly for those professionals looking to start a small- to medium on-site AD project, those in the automotive industry looking at new technologies, sustainability and environment graduates, local authorities, investors looking to get into Biogas projects and businesses wanting to get involved in Biogas.

“As such, we have rounded up the very best industry professionals who can share wisdom and offer valuable advice to the benefits and barriers of on-farm AD. We have no doubt that delegates will find the day extremely informative and useful to future projects.”
