First AD Plant Certified under New Performance Scheme
(Bioenergy Insight) A food waste-to-energy plant in Wiltshire has become the first in England to be certified under the Anaerobic Digestion Certification Scheme (ADCS).
The Bore Hill Farm Biodigester in Warminster, Wiltshire is run by Malaby Biogas and processes inedible food waste to create biofertiliser and renewable heat and power. According to a statement it generates enough electricity to power 2,500 houses.
Designed to recognise good operational, environmental and health and safety performance at UK AD plants, the ACDS is managed by the UK’s Anaerobic Digestion & Bioresources Association (ADBA). It strives to provide an independent process and report that help stakeholders including regulators, insurers, investors and operators.
Bore Hill Farm is the second AD facility certified under the scheme, following Granville EcoPark in Northern Ireland earlier this year. READ MORE
