Cornwall Farmers to Trial ‘Green’ Biomethane Fuel from Manure

Farmers in Cornwall are to trial a new ‘green’ fuel made from manure slurry in what is believed to be the first scheme of its kind in the world.

Cornwall Council and Cormac, which looks after its fleet of vehicles, have joined forces with six of its county-owned dairy farms and a Cornish technology company to trial the production of an alternative green fuel.

If successful, the programme could be rolled out to hundreds of small-scale farms across Cornwall, giving farmers the chance to diversify their income, save on operating costs and help fight climate change.
