On Monday 6th June, The One Show on BBC1 did a great piece about Anaerobic Digestion in the UK. The section focussed on how AD technology has helped one Scottish dairy farmer, Jim Shanks, manage in the current economy of low milk prices. The piece shows the anaerobic digester and its positive relationship with the dairy farm. Along with the AD plant, Jim has invested in a Tesla Model S Electric Vehicle that he powers with the electricity he generates on site. Over 5 years, Jim expects that he will save around £22,000 on fuel costs!
