Benefits

The second project of the Research Hub

The project outputs provide a valuable resource for the Anaerobic Digestion industry.

Key benefits include:

  • The positive and negative characteristics of digestate and the identification of commercial digestate valorisation options that have been demonstrated under ‘real world’ conditions.
  • The data pack statistics provide a useful tool during revision of the AD Quality Protocol and can inform the consultation on revision of the UK’s fragmented fertilisers regulations, particularly around digestates’ macro- and micro-nutrient and organic matter contents. 
  • Results will inform regulatory decision making and will provide the AD industry with the evidence necessary to enhance and diversify the use of their digestate.
