    Are they worth looking at?
    Do they stack up again?
    Just curious as I think there have been a few tariff changes?

    You’ll need double the land area the AD plants. Very roughly 1000ac of cropping will fuel a 1MW plant if it’s all coming off the fields. Add in wastes then less land is required.
    It’s a full time job as you can’t be to far away in case of any issues.

    The problem with this is you invest a few million to set up the plant to take your waste, then all of a sudden the waste contracts aren’t there or only last a few years into a 20 yr project. A farmer can only set up a plant with the view of using his own land, then any additional waste contract is a benefit.

    Dont let the grant tail wag the dog!
