An anaerobic digestion plant that is the right size for use on a UK farm. Generate electricity from cow slurry. No need to import feedstocks. No need to grow energy crops. Improve farm profits. Protect against future energy cost increases. A proven technology. Low capital cost and high return on investment. An impossible dream? All in a day’s work for Advanced Anaerobics Limited.
Take the slurry from 100 to 300 cows. Generate 30kW of electricity from 8 to 24 hours per day. One full-scale plant running near the Dutch-German border since 2011. Two further plants commissioned and running. KFB has developed a cost-effective anaerobic digester optimized for the German market. Drawing on this experience, AAL has created SlurryGen – to meet the specific needs of dairy farms in the UK.
SlurryGen extracts energy from cow slurry to meet farm energy demands. Surplus electricity is exported to the grid. Treated slurry retains its nutrient value for fertiliser use. Choose from three sizes to suit the amount of slurry available. Today – cow slurry only. Tomorrow – a broader range of materials arising on the farm. A new source of farm energy – at an affordable cost.
3 March, 2016: UK Government launches consultation on the future of the RHI. May limit qualifying heat uses and use of energy crops.
1 March, 2016: Simon Shuker takes up new role as Director of Business Development, to market SlurryGen to Britain’s farmers.
15 February, 2016: Martin Brooks joins AAL as Director of Operations, to design the next generation of products and expand delivery capacity.
8 February, 2016: Preliminary accreditation for Feed-in Tariff reintroduced as queuing system. Over 8 months of anaerobic digestion capacity taken in the first day.
17 December, 2015: Government publishes outcome of Feed-in Tariff consultation, reducing tariffs for most technologies and rationing funding for new capacity.
Anaerobic digestion is an increasingly important bio-technology based on the natural process in which micro-organisms break down organic matter to make biogas, a source of renewable energy, and digestate, a nutrient-rich fertiliser.
