28 January 2019Biogen Spreading Operations
Biogen will be applying biofertiliser from their Twinwoods Anaerobic Digestion plant to the fields in this area in the coming weeks. As you are aware the Twinwoods plant recycles food waste to produce renewable electricity for the national grid. The biofertiliser produced as part of the process is rich in nutrients and good use is made of it by applying it to farmland.
The biofertiliser is applied twice a year and it is now approaching the first spreading season and Biogen will therefore be applying fertiliser to the fields in this area in the coming weeks. Every effort will be made to ensure minimal disturbance to local residents.
If you have any queries regarding any of the above or experience any problems during the spreading of the biofertiliser, please contact Biogen by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 0844 3267 251, or out of office hours on 0844 8480 654.
