New On-Farm Anaerobic Digestion System Approved

At Prism we are celebrating our latest anaerobic digestion success after planning consent was granted by Hambleton District Council, who approved an on-farm anaerobic digestion facility at New Mill Farm.

This is a renewable energy project primarily using fertiliser to produce both green energy and a nutrient rich, odourless fertiliser.  Our experience continues to show that the industry is regarded as a new, innovative form of development met with some trepidation from Planning Authorities and local communities.  As a result a great deal of reassurance is required to persuade people that they are safe and won’t impact on their lives.  That said, it is worthwhile noting that in our experience Hambleton District Council is probably the local planning authority most open to considering on farm anaerobic digestion schemes.

With this new decision, Prism have shown skills, knowledge and more importantly, experience of progressing a variety of anaerobic digestion schemes through the planning system, of varying scales and complexities from simple on-farm systems through to major food processing facilities. We have now also built up a formidable range of contacts in the AD technology and financial sector so that anybody thinking of undertaking anaerobic digestion couldn’t hope to meet a more experienced and well-positioned team.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are considering some form of AD project.
