Holton AD Plant operated by Biocow is a 4 million pound, 1.1 mega watt AD Plant that is connected, to a Bernard Matthews effluent treatment plant. The liquid waste from the effluent plant is pumped into our AD plant to be converted into a methane rich gas.
The biogas is used for the production of electricity and heating – supplying 16% of the onsite poultry factories energy needs. It also leads to a C02 reduction of 2,800 tonnes per year.
Most importantly the plants operation has led to a reduction in lorry journeys from the factory site. Bernard Matthews estimate that this that the plants removes over 1,200 lorry journeys each year – that’s around 60% of the factory’s traffic associated with waste.
