The criteria required for the installation of an anaerobic digester which uses animal by-product as a feed stock are set out in Regulation (EC) No. 1069/2009 and Regulation (EU) No. 142/2011 which lay down health rules as regards animal by-products and derived products not intended for human consumption. The conditions applying to the operation of a biogas plant can be found in the document "CN 11 Approval and Operation of Biogas Plants" and the conditions document " CN9" which deals specifically with on-farm biogas plants.
Any person considering the development of an anaerobic digester using animal by-product as a feedstock should contact my Department at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a meeting with the relevant officials who will provide information and assistance to enable the development of the biogas project.
Attached for the convenience of the Deputy are the application forms and conditions documents for the different types of anaerobic digesters.
