This is great news for the project team, as it enables the scientists to explore the potential for other strains of algae to be grown on digestate. It will also provide another potential market for ALG-AD investors to consider.
This approach not only utilises excess digestate, but also provides a locally cultivated, sustainable alternative to imported feed ingredients, such as soya. The team is also developing decision support tools and best practice guides to help others develop and adopt the new technology.
Any plant managers who are interested in exploring this approach, and developing a case study specifically for their business, please get in touch with Louise Hall, Project manager – firstname.lastname@example.org
