PlanET Biogas UK supports forage aid fundraising
PlanET Biogas UK Ltd. has contributed a donation towards a newly set up forage aid for rural farmers and will support the fundraising tractor and trailer run through the counties of Somerset, Avon, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Shropshire. With approximately 12 stops planned en route the run will start from Sedgemoor and end in Telford on February 11, the opening day of the Energy Now Expo 2015. PlanET Biogas UK Lt. will exhibit at stand 100.
“This forage aid helps safeguarding the business of rural farmers in case of unexpected crisis such as Somerset Levels flooding 12 months ago”, Stephan Hoffmann, project manager from PlanET Biogas UK Ltd., reports. “We intend our donation to be some kind of activating booster for other companies to support this important fundraising”. One stop along the route will be a PlanET biogas plant in Peterchurch, Herefordshire. The operator of the 250 kW plant, Dave Morgan, welcomes the fundraising tour on Tuesday, 10th February 2015 between 9.30 and 10.30 a.m. The agricultural AD plant is based on cattle manure, broiler manure, grass and maize silage and enables its owner to become more energy self-sufficient and to build up a reliable new income stream.
The tractor run will kick off at sedgemoor livestock market at 10.00 a.m. on Monday, 9th February and stop at the PlanET AD plant on Tuesday, 10th February: DJ & HM Morgan (up from 9.30 a.m.), Penllan Farm, Peterchurch HR2 0SU.
