“BIOGEN’s Twinwoods AD Plant”, the first of it’s kind in the UK, was conceived in 2003
to solve the problem of dealing with the considerable amounts of pig slurry Bedfordia
Farms were having to deal with each year, as well as finding an alternative and
sustainable income for the business. The integrated AD approach was seen as an
exemplary green solution to the significant food waste challenges that also exist in
the UK. Therefore by integrating the AD process into the farming environment at
Bedfordia Farms, both food and animal waste could be dealt with in an
environmentally friendly way whilst producing renewable electricity and a nutrient rich
bio-fertiliser. The fertiliser is used as an integral part of the arable crop production of
the farm. What starts in food production, ends in food production – closing the loop.
