Rural Renewables Anaerobic Digestion Plants The construction of anaerobic digestion plants produces particular challenges. Not only does the plant have to be acquired and installed but ongoing contracts need to be entered into the deal with the acquisition of feed stock and the disposal of waste products including digestate. We have acted for a number of businesses in dealing with these issues. Recent Case Studies ■ We are instructed by a landed estate which is interested in entering into an arrangement for the construction of an anaerobic digestion plant on its property. This involved the grant of an Option pursuant to which the developer would seek planning permission and, subject to obtaining planning permission, would take a lease of the site. ■ The landowner would not only receive a rental income but also an element of the power and heat generated by the installation. As well as the Option and lease arrangements, we are advising in connection with the contracts with the landowner to supply the feed stock and to supply routine services in connection with the running of the anaerobic digestion plant.
