A RENEWABLE energy source from animal waste and sewerage is the topic at a seminar at Bicton Arena next month.

Energy from Waste is will present farmers the 'opportunities' open to them in Anaerobic Digestion (AD).

AD is a renewable technology which converts waste to energy providing a source of electricity and heat supply.

Almost any organic material can be processed including biodegradable waste materials such as waste paper, grass clippings, leftover food, sewage and animal waste.

Organiser Mark Howard, an expert in environmental issues, said: "Because the technology complies with the Government's objectives of securing the country's energy supply and reducing greenhouse emissions, it attracts grants and produces saleable energy certificates as well as providing a cheap personal source of heat and energy.

"There are thousands of AD plants in Europe but less than 20 in the UK. The technology will really take off soon so now is the time for the farming to community to learn about the opportunities open to them."
