• Developing value adding options for Anaerobic Digestion (AD)- Peakhill Associates has recently delivered a scoping study report on the potential for utilising Low Input High Diversity (LIHD) Biomass harvested from road verges as a feedstock for AD plants. This work has the twin benefits of improving the sustainability production process of a low carbon biofuel whilst of improving the biodiversity of the road verge ecosystem through a change to the vegetation management regime from ‘cut and leave’ to ‘cut and lift’.
