English Dairy Launches £3.4 Million Anaerobic Digestion Facility

An English dairy has officially opened a £3.4m anaerobic digestion (AD) facility that will turn food waste from around the county into the energy helping to produce its clotted cream, ice cream creme fraiche and yoghurt. The facility at Langage Farm, Plymouth, Devonshire, received £1.2m of funding from the Anaerobic Digestion Demonstration Programme.

By the end of its first year of operation, the AD facility will process 12,000 tonnes of food waste collected from households across the county by local authorities. The facility will also process on-farm dairy wastes, converting these fuels into renewable heat and electricity.

The renewable energy will not only power the dairy products production, but surplus will exported to the National Grid. In its first five years, the Langage AD facility is expected to produce 20,000 MW of energy saving the equivalent of 2,000 tonnes of CO2 per annum/£ on energy bills.
