Dairy UK today welcomed news that member BV Dairy is to trial technology that turns waste into power.
Dorset-based BV Dairy is receiving government funding for a demonstration anaerobic digestion project, which should supply a significant part of its energy requirements. BV makes a range of fresh dairy products at its Shaftesbury dairy.
Dairy UK Environment Manager Fergus McReynolds said: “I’m delighted to see this project going ahead. Anaerobic digestion technology can play a major role in reducing the dairy sector’s environmental impact. It is also a key part of processors’ commitment under the Milk Roadmap.
“Dairy UK will help to disseminate information about the project and encourage members to visit the site once it is up and running. We are also supporting other AD projects and hope there will be more announcements of this sort soon.”
BV’s digester is being built by Clearfleau and will be capable of generating 30,000 kWh of heat and 45,000 kWh of electricity each week from effluent. The funding is being made available under WRAP’s Environment Transformation Fund.
