Staffordshire young farmer Rob Greenow has successfully established his own anaerobic digestion business – allowing him to secure his future in farming before the age of 30.

Combining an interest in renewable energy with his farming experience, Rob established AD management business, BioG UK just a couple of years after leaving university. The success of the business has seen him become a partner for AD finance company Privilege Finance.

“While studying at Reading University I completed my dissertation on ammonia volatisation and the spreading application types of digestate from AD Plants,” says Mr Greenow. “At the time AD was only just becoming popular in the agricultural industry but I could see the potential.

“After graduation, I joined an AD company and was involved in the planning and running of various sites. But, in 2012 I decided to go it alone and set up BioG UK, hoping that one day I would be able to establish my own AD plant.”

Initially, Rob hoped to support farmers through the feasibility and planning stages of building their own AD plant. But his business soon changed direction. “After two years, I shifted the focus of the business to concentrate on helping existing AD plant owners troubleshoot and manage their plants.”

In 2016, Mr Greenow completed the purchase of his own 66ha arable farm. At about the same time, he managed to secure two years of planning for the development of his own AD plant at Batchacre Hall Farm, Staffordshire.
