Potential Odour Sources & their Mitigation

Delivery & Handling of Feedstock ~ Potato pulp and any animal manures will be transferred into the underground slurry store.
Silage Clamp ~ covered with a cling film material, a polythene sheet and bird cover to seal in and protect.
End-substrate ~ After processing in the AD Plant 90% of the biogas has been removed and with it sulphur and other compounds that can cause odour. End-substrate is virtually odourless and can be spread on farmland without ‘creating a stink’
