Plant application rejected in Devon

Greener for Life (GfL), a food and energy supplier based in the UK, recently submitted an application to build an anaerobic digester in Rackenford, Devon.

However GfL’s plans have been dashed after the application was turned down by councillors.

The plant, expected to cost in the region of £25 million (€29.7 million), would have processed cow slurry, crops and food waste, 40,000 tonnes of which ends up at Devon’s landfill sites every year.

But on 21 June Devon County Council blocked the application in the grounds that Rackenford was the wrong location and plant was just too large.
