One Big New Advantage of Anaerobic Digestion to Replace Depleted Land Carbon


A big new advantage of anaerobic
digestion. The UK’s Committee on climate change (CCC), is the body which advises on how the UK will meet its obligations to reduce climate change, as in the Paris
agreement. It has come up with a new advantage of anaerobic digestion, to
raise carbon biomass in agricultural soils. No one can deny that all
governments need to help reduce climate change. Climate change threatens the
land’s ability to provide critical services, including clean water, healthy
soils, and timber, and ensure sufficient food production, for an increasing
population, and it threatens to reduce space for new homes. They say that a good way
to reduce the climate change arising from excess carbon (CO2) in the atmosphere is to hold more carbon in the land (soil). At the same time, this would improve soil
fertility, and provide more food. So, they are recommending that fundamental reform
is implemented, to ensure land becomes a more effective carbon store. To store
this carbon, a source of suitable organic material will be needed. Biogas plants
(using anaerobic digestion processes) are ideally suited to providing this, by
creating the necessary carbon, for return to the land, from their fertilizing
output known as “digestate”. This is a newly discovered advantage of anaerobic
digestion to add to the existing advantages, the biggest of which is the
production of renewable energy, in the form of biogas. Click below for more
