The renewable energy event for farmers and landowners

25-26 October 2017 The Hub at Cillin Hill, Kilkenny

AD & biogas


Anaerobic digestion (AD) is the breakdown of organic material, including crops, slurries and food waste, by micro-organisms in the absence of oxygen.  AD produces biogas, a methane-rich gas that can be used as a fuel, and digestate, a source of nutrients that can be used as fertilizer. Increasingly AD is being used to make the most of our waste by turning it into renewable energy. AD benefits many different groups; including the local community, industry, famers and energy entrepreneurs, government and the environment.
