Energy efficiency is not just low-hanging fruit; it is fruit on the ground.Stephen Chu, US Secretary of Energy
Ground-breaking energy solution
A joint venture between R&L Holt and Evesham Vale Growers (EVG) attracted more than 20 growers to the latest HDC GrowSave event. The visit to Springhill Nursery near Evesham was organised to show how the site has integrated an Anaerobic Digester (AD) with the energy needs of tomato growing.
The site is unique in the way that it makes use of the carbon dioxide that is removed from the resulting biogas. Although this has meant spending more capital to get the carbon dioxide quality needed, the end result is an excellent example of how two organisations can come together to achieve an innovative sustainable and energy efficient solution.
