Wilson’s Country invests £2m in anaerobic development system

Northern Irish potato packer and processer Wilson’s Country is investing £2 million in an anaerobic development (AD) system, as Fred Searle reports for Fruitnet.

Located at the supplier’s site in Craigavon, County Armagh, the new plant will provide 60 per cent of the company’s annual electricity requirements. The company said it was an important step towards the company’s ambition to reach net zero in the coming years.

The new system is being gradually brought online over the coming weeks, and it will reach full operational capacity by the end of November.

Company CEO Angus Wilson said: “We have been using certified ‘green electricity’ only within our entire operation for the past couple of years. This step alone has allowed us to reduce the carbon intensity of the company by 75 per cent.”
