CLA49 - Biogas: anaerobic digestion of manures, crops and wastes as an enterprise.

This new handbook provides an introduction to the exciting opportunities for members in the area of anaerobic digestion. Following successful lobbying by CLA, from this month electricity generation from biogas will get double the support that is afforded large wind turbines.

Thanks to the CLA, the regulatory framework is improving which will reduce compliance costs, but there remain significant economies of scale. Thus biogas is not a cheap option, but is one that can profitably enable members to address climate change on farms and estates.

The handbook details the available technology, the costs and benefits and the regulatory framework with case studies and references to further reading and advice.
