Custom made projects, adapted to the farm scale

What is anaerobic digestion on a farm?

Anaerobic digestion on a farm is a project backed by one or several farmers who decide to diversify their activity by developing a biogas project.

The types of input waste used in these projects are largely based on the effluent and by-products derived directly from agricultural activity of the project leader and possibly his close neighbours.

Benefits for the farmers

Anaerobic digestion is particularly interesting for farmers as it allows:

Economically speaking:

  • diversification of the farmer’s sources of revenue
  • reduction of mineral fertilizer consumption
  • possible heat consumption autonomy in a context of rising fossil fuel costs

Environmentally speaking:

  • treatment of biodegradable waste and co-products
  • reduction of odour due to storage and land application of livestock effluents
  • production of a high agronomic quality digestate
  • the reduction of pathogens and weeds compared to the spreading of raw materials

Socially speaking:

  • an improvement of the company’s image ( green energy consumption, recycling…)
  • increased energetic independence
  • the conservation and creation of a non-relocatable activity
  • the development of new activities : industrial tourism, touristic or educational routes on renewable energies for example.
