Anaerobic digestion extracts more value from our organic waste (including inedible food waste, manures, wastewater) and break/cover crops than any alternative
Biogas Action seeks to support the development of small scale on-farm anaerobic digestion. The project provides free impartial advice to farmers and landowners on using farm waste for sustainable soil and nutrient management, reduction of green-house gas emissions, and energy production. Dairy farming, in particular, is very well suited to farm scale AD, as it produces large volumes of manure and slurry and also has relatively high energy use.
We would like to hear from you if you are a farmer or landowner that wants to:
Strategy - A Vision for Small Scale On-farm Anaerobic Digestion
The Strategy has come about following discussions with key stakeholders from agricultural and anaerobic digestion industries and regulators in Wales, and represents the views of members of the group. Severn Wye Energy Agency, under the Biogas Action project, has facilitated these discussions and compiled this report as a recommendation to Welsh Government to introduce an Anaerobic Digestion Strategy for Wales. Download of the strategy is available on the right.
Replication - The ambition of Biogas Action is to serve as a vehicle for an unbiased and rapid development of the European biogas / biomethane sector and thereby contribute to the EU 2020 targets. One of the central activities of the project is the cooperation between different policy levels at EU, national and regional level by replication in different regions in the EU.

“It is always a special moment for Wales to be recognised across the world for our pioneering work in renewable energy, which plays such an important role in global sustainability. As a nation we are hugely grateful for the passion and hard work that individuals like Andy have put in over many years in order to help secure the future of Wales, so this award comes as a fitting tribute to the lasting impact he has made.”
They were produced in consultation with AD experts and are aimed at those farmers/landowners/plant owners that may not consider any formal training to run their installation, and so they are only a few minutes long each and focus on the basics.
