Anaerobic Digestion Plant, Pershore

Evesham Vale Growers

RPS secured Planning permission for a vegetable feedstock Anaerobic Digestion Plant in Worcestershire.

The facility is located next to an existing 49,000m2 glasshouse and handles approximately 30,000tpa of vegetable feedstock generated from the farm holdings with maize being used to top up any shortage in supply.

The development provides a particularly sustainable solution to both waste management and energy production with the outputs from the Anaerobic Digestion process used to heat and light the Glasshouse development and the resulting carbon dioxide and digestate fed into the glasshouse to further improve tomato production.

Prior to preparing the AD application, RPS had submitted a planning application to regularise the recently built commercial Glasshouse.
