The millions of tons of slurry produced on British farms each year could be turned into sustainable forms of energy and low-carbon fuel.

Slurry from livestock can be converted into biogas through anaerobic digestion and used to power equipment such as tractors.

The Royal Agricultural Society’s report Refuelling the Countryside suggests the 90 to 100 million tons of slurry produced on British farms each year could be turned into the farming fuel of the future.
