Green Grass Gas

A renewable energy company has submitted a planning application to generate energy from grass on sites where fracking is planned in Lancashire. Ecotricity propose two green gas mills. Species rich grass grown on farmland would be harvested and undergo anaerobic digestion to produce renewable gas for heating buildings. They claim this process would cut carbon emissions, help create wildlife habitats, improve soils if grass is grown in rotation with food crops and provide income for farmers. The company is hoping to provide an alternative form of renewable energy and provide a viable alternative to fracking.

For more information see the Ecotricity website:
