Who will this affect?
Members within many sectors of the NFU may be affected by these changes. The most common examples of the use of Medium Combustion Plants in agriculture are:
- For heating pig and poultry housing;
- For heating glasshouses, particularly for salad production;
- For grain drying;
- In some circumstances in larger dairy units for heating water;
- Anaerobic digester plants (including those fed by solely purpose grown energy crops).
The directive will impact upon combustion plants with any fuel source including conventional LPG, biomass, other solid fuels and fuel oil.
