We work with manufacturers and suppliers in the food industry providing a transparent and ethical home for their waste.
We provide a home for your waste that gives you peace of mind that it is being handled and processed ethically and to the highest environmental standards. We look to build long-term partnerships with our waste suppliers, where they see our AD Plant as an extension of their own operations. With this in mind we encourage customer visits to support your own CSR and Environmental credentials.
We produce Biomethane, Green Electricity and Renewable Heat from our Solar and Anaerobic Digestion facilities.
We run Solar and Anaerobic Digestion facilities on our site. The Anaerobic Digestion facility produces enough heat to supply 2,000 homes with energy and is directly connected to the Nation Grid. Working with our waste suppliers we also offer the facility to buy back Green Gas Certificates to offset against their own carbon footprint. The solar PV installation also supplies renewable energy to our 5,000T Grain Drying facility.
A by-product of the Anaerobic Digestion Process is a nutrient rich Natural Fertiliser high in organic matter and trace elements. Through soil sampling and analysis we can benchmark the health of your soils and analyse improvements over the seasons.
At Rockscape we believe that our soils are our most important asset and our Natural Fertiliser provides a truly sustainable alternative to synthetic products. We have seen significant improvement in soil health, especially through increased organic matter, where the Natural Fertiliser has been used over several seasons.
Maize is an important feedstock as part of our recipe for the AD Plant as it brings biological stability. We require healthy bacteria to breakdown organic matter to produce Biomethane. Maize keeps the bacteria healthy and guards against any shocks to the plant biology from other feedstocks allowing us to operate at high and consistent production levels.
Maize is also an important part of our balanced crop rotation providing a useful tool for weed control, especially against Resistant Blackgrass, it grows well on some of our less productive lighter soils and helps to spread the workload throughout the year as it is a spring crop.
