Briefing: progress towards 1000 AD plants

Anaerobic Digestion_9330

Reflecting recent policy developments and incorporating updated deployment statistics, we have further revised the NFU's policy briefing document on anaerobic digestion (AD).

The NFU continues to lobby the Government to incentivise the deployment of AD in the agricultural sector, as well as for the management of food waste and recycling of nutrients to land, and has strongly championed the cause of small and medium-sized on-farm AD plants for processing of agricultural manures and residues together with crop feedstocks.

Despite a ‘rollercoaster ride’, we believe the AD industry remains robust, innovative and ambitious about its prospects for further growth, as it comes within reach of the widely-shared aspiration of 1000 biogas plants by 2020.
