Rob Seex: Focus on anaerobic digestion

Rob is a Gloucestershire dairy farmer, milking 110 cows on his 140 acre dairy. In 1993 he installed a 25 cubic metre anaerobic digestion system, which takes approximately 5 cubic metres of slurry per day. The gas generated is then used to heat two houses on the farm and the digestate as a natural fertiliser. While the heating produces benefits by reducing the amount of fossil fuels the farm needs for heating, the system also produces several other environmental and economic benefits. In this case study, Robert outlines the detail behind his project…
