Screen spot for bio business
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.
