A circular economy recycles resources and minimises waste. Moving towards a circular economy system is considered vital for long term sustainability.
The business model used at Apsley Farms has applied circular economy principles for over a decade, and we continue to bridge any gaps. For example, our energy needs – both for electricity and heating – are supplied from our own biodigesters. Our own digestate fertilises for our fields – and some of our partner farms. Even our CO2 is cleaned and supplied to the food industry.
Apsley Farms provides a range of sustainable products and services for British consumers, farmers and industry. Using our low carbon technology, we’re proud of the contribution we’re making towards a greener, more sustainable future.
Sustainability and efficiency are at the heart of everything we do at Apsley Farms. We’ve adopted cutting edge technologies and turned low value crops into renewable energy. We focus on a circular economy by returning the nutrients in our digestate products back to the land as a fertiliser.
Our process of generating green gas and other important by-products ticks three important boxes: it displaces natural gas (fossil fuel) in the gas grid to heat people’s homes; it displaces CO2 made by the fertiliser industry, which is essential in the food industry; and it simultaneously generates natural fertiliser in the process!
