ADBA have been approached by a new AD technology provider. The new technology has been trialled in Israel on a 100 head herd of cattle and claims to improve on conventional AD. The technology initally started as a water purification technique in Israel until its potential in AD was recognised.
The main benefit of the system is that it increases the throughput of the system by having a reduced hydralic retention time. By increasing the systems throughput the footprint can be half the size of a traditional plant and therefore have lower CAPEX.
For the plant the technology provider is ideally looking for a site with the below characteristics:
- UK site with indoor cattle all year round
- 1-2,000 head heard of cattle (dairy preferably), which has an estimated IRR in the high teens
- Chicken muck can be used as a supplement as it has been trialled already
- Gas grid or near a connection facility
- Existing AD plants can be re-arranged
Feel free to pass my details onto those who you may have an interest in the above.
