Anaerobic Digester - Planning and permitting

E4environment Ltd has been instrumental in winning planning approvals for anaerobic digester projects (on-farm and industrial) since the late 1990s, liaising with the Environment Agency and local planning authorities across the country.


Projects have taken us across the UK, from Cornwall to Scotland, working on a variety of plant sizes to generate electricity, heat, and vehicle fuel from mainly agricultural wastes.

Our expert consultants have successfully completed 40 – 44 applications of which only 2 have been refused.


The plants we have worked on vary in size from small 80kW to most of them being between 1-4 MW. The largest volume of organics was 120,000 tonnes per annum of feedstock. Generally the plants were waste plants using a mix of agricultural crop and waste, food waste and energy crop or poultry products waste.
