OUR AD SYSTEM REQUIREMENTSIdeal Clients Small to Medium scale livestock farm (Pigs, Poultry, Dairy, Beef) Medium to Large scale fruit and vegetable growers Location near to existing 3 phase Electricity connection or sub station Continuous availability of feedstock throughout the yearOur approach Export Electricity between 100kWhr and 500kWhr Working with the farmer to size the plant to suite the farm Underground tanks reduce visual impact of the installation Underground tanks provide consistent thermal gradient Unique modular tank design Thermophilic anaerobic process to maximise gas production, minimise volume of feedstock and produces bio fertiliser Automated and controllable system CONFIDENTIAL Our potential client base matched to our system </li> <li> 14. OUR AD SYSTEM INPUT REQUIREMENTS Recommendation: 100% on-farm produced manure and slurry Additionally: 3% Glycerine with 6% Energy crop feedstock and water Pigs Minimum number 1,000 head of finishers = 100kWh = income of 166,000 per yr Maximum number 6,500 head of finishers = 500kWh = income of 717,500 per yr Cow (Dairy) Minimum number 200 head of herd = 100kWh Maximum number 1,500 head of herd = 500 kWh o Income above excludes renewable heat incentive revenue stream o The selective use of imported materials can increase BioGas yield and reduce the minimum number of livestock CONFIDENTIAL Animal Feedstock </li> <li> 15.
