Anaerobic Digestion (‘AD’) is a renewable energy production technology through which animal slurry and fermented silage is digested to form organic fertiliser and bio-gas. The bio-gas (comprising mainly of methane) is in turn converted into a consistent supply of electricity.
AD is a very environmentally friendly technology. While still in its infancy, it already has a large footprint in Europe, with Germany being a leading user. It uses what would be waste or low value agricultural products to create valuable outputs and reduce the harmful effects on the atmosphere. It takes animal slurry, which emits a great deal of methane, the greenhouse effect of which is 25 times greater than carbon dioxide, as well as other greenhouse gas producing bio-waste such as crop silage, into electricity and a high-quality natural fertiliser.
