Benefits of Anaerobic Digestion

a) Environmental Benefits

  • Reduces carbon emissions and can contribute to national renewable energy targets
  • Only biogas (and some carbon dioxide) is taken out, so valuable nutrients are recycled back into the soil
  • Digestate may also be used as a feedstock for other biofuel production and for innovative fibre building materials
  • AD creates skilled ‘green’ jobs and contributes to growth in the local economy
  • When used in conjunction with segregated municipal waste collection, it reduces waste sent to landfill
  • Sanitizes waste output providing a reduced public health hazard/ reduces pollution risk.
