Screen spot for bio busi­ness

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A FILM crew from a pop­u­lar BBC pro­gramme came to Che­sham to film a fea­ture for an up­com­ing episode.

Coun­try­file went to Bio Global In­dus­tries in Ash­eridge last week to film a piece about grow­ing your own fu­els.

The com­pany has the largest plan­ta­tion in Europe of biomass fu­els that it is cur­rently tri­alling.

Pre­sen­ter Adam Hen­son in­ter­viewed the com­pany’s man­ag­ingdi­rec­torMatthew Hunt to find out more about how farm­ers can plant, grow and har­vest biomass crops, such as fast grow­ing wil­low, which can then be used as a fuel in the com­pany’s Biokom­pakt biomass boil­ers to pro­duce heat­ing and hot wa­ter.

They also talked about what new fu­els can be grown in the fu­ture – in par­tic­u­lar, Mis­cant­hus, which is the ‘next big’ fuel for farm­ers.

They also dis­cussed how to utilise waste prod­ucts that nor­mally go into land­fill, that can also be used as ‘green’ fu­els in the boil­ers.

The fea­ture is ex­pected to air on BBC1 at 6.15pm on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 6.
