UK grain coop looking to build 500kW biogas digester to improve carbon footprint

August 5, 2020 |

In the UK, the Northumberland Gazette reports a cooperative of 80 grain farmers is seeking to build a 500kW biogas digester to supply energy to its grains operations and reduce its carbon footprint. The facility would use low quality grain, rather than shipping it off for use as ethanol production at facilities elsewhere in the country, together with silage, cattle and possibly chicken manure. Between 26% and 45% of the feedstock would be from low quality grains. The project received approval from the Northumberland County Council’s planning committee with mixed support.
