About The Event
Biomethane Technical Site Visit

Visit Wyke Farms' Anaerobic Digester on a guided tour. The dairy farm based in Somerset converts manure into methane gas, making enough gas for 6,000 homes.

 

The Clothier family have been crafting Cheddar for over 150 years. Today, they generate all of their own electricity and gas for their cheese making and any excess is supplied back into the grid to power the green revolution.

 

The three anaerobic digesters extract methane from animal waste. Once the gas has reached the standard of the national gas grid. They pump 13,500 cubic metres every day through a pipe that connects to neighbouring town Bruton, whose gas supply solely comes from Wyke Farms.

 

Wales & West Utilities has 16 biogas connections, this is one of the oldest, supplying green gas to their customers since November 2014.

 

Refreshments will be provided at the event, kindly sponsored by Wales & West Utilities.
