Wiltshire’s first commercial anaerobic digestion (AD) facility will be up and running next year, processing up to 20,000 tonnes of commercial food and slurry waste.

Malaby Biogas will begin commissioning the Bore Hill Farm biodigester in Warminster during the second quarter of 2012. The facility will also take animal slurries, abattoir waste and spoiled non-woody crops.

The £5m plant will generate around 500kW of electricity to feed into the national grid as well as supply renewable energy to nine business units scheduled for development on the site in 2013. It will also produce 15,000 tonnes of digestate.
