POWERED BY NATURE

Independent tests have shown even greater plant uptake than chemical fertilizers at a fraction of the cost.

As part of our service offering we provide:

  • A full soil sampling of your farm

  • Complete Nutrient Management Plan

  • We manage Local Authority Approval

  • We deliver the exact amount of digestate to your location
     

Call us at 01 685 4324 and we will be happy to discuss your soil nutrient requirements with you.

 We are offering great value for our digestate and NMPs for 2024 which will include Sampling & Mapping cost and delivery to site

The by-product of the AD process known as digestate is a nutrient rich substance that can replace expensive synthetic fertilizers.  This is crucial for reducing our reliance on expensive non-organic fertilizers.

THE BENEFITS OF DIGESTATE

Biogas production is a virtuous circle.  We take organic materials that can, themselves become environmental pollutants, and transform them into gas.  The residue from the production process is dried and re-supplied to the farms from which much of our organic feedstock can be sourced.  This residue makes an excellent fertiliser and means that none of the organic material goes to waste.

1. Digestate produced from Anaerobic Digestion is nutrient rich

Digestate is the by-product of the AD process.  It is packed full of essential nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and trace elements, unlike chemical fertilisers which contain a limited range of nutrients. The use of digestate improves soil health due to the gradual release of nutrients which also supports steady plant growth and eliminates nutrient imbalances in the soil. 

 

2. Improved Soil Structure
 

Digestate contains significant amounts of organic matter. When incorporated into the soil organic matter improves drainage, water retention and soil structure. Improved soil structure results in a healthy soil ecosystem, improved aeration, root growth and increased microbial activity. 
 

3. Helping to protect the Environment
 

The use of digestate as a fertiliser reduces the environmental impact compared to chemical alternatives. Chemical fertilisers are carbon intensive and can leach into water bodies resulting in nutrient pollution. Using digestate helps to protect our waterways, improves crop resiliance against climate change and fosters soil carbon sequestration.

Unlike chemical fertilizers, digestate is produced in Ireland and doesn't have to travel across countries to reach your farm.

4. Closing the nutrient loop
 

By utilising digestate as a fertiliser, farmers are actively participating in a circular economy approach.  Applying digestate back to the land completes the nutrient loop, returning valuable nutrients to the soil and closing the circle of resource recovery.  The AD process has zero waste.

5. Cost benefits to farmers
 

Digestate provides the benefits of organic matter and nutrients in one product eliminating the need for separate fertilisers.
