UK - BPEX has launched a photo diary so progress can be followed on a new farm-scale anaerobic digestion (AD) unit being installed at the University of Newcastle.

BPEX has launched an exciting new AD Photo Diary following the progress of a new farm-scale AD unit being installed at Cockle Park Farm, University of Newcastle. The AD plant will be fed on a combination of pig slurry, cattle slurry, farmyard manure (FYM) and vegetable waste from a local vegetable packer.

BPEX hopes that this demonstration and research site will show that small-scale AD plants can be a viable option for small and medium-sized farmers who want to invest in renewable energy.
