Agriculture and the agri-food industries can benefit a lot from their waste material and turn it into savings rather than a cost related to disposal services.

Animal-breeding farms, dairy farms and slaughterhouses can utilize manure and waste through a biogas installation which can feed them back with electricity, heat or even cooling needed for the process. After the digestion process there is waste material, which however is rich soil fertilizer, which can be used in the associated plant-growing estate or sold to other farms. The excess electricity produced can be sold to the grid at feed-in tariffs and generate further revenues.
