Agrivert achieves PAS 110
Like many AD plants in the UK, Agrivert originally commissioned their plant with silage as a supplementary feedstock. It quickly emerged silage needed to be pasteurised if PAS 110 certification was going to be achieved (Agrivert’s plant was not designed to pasteurise silage). Consequently, Agrivert had to remove silage from its feedstock to acquire PAS 110. WRAP's review scheduled for the autumn should examine whether PAS 110's requirement to pasteurise silage still has merit.
Alexander Maddan explained that: "Agrivert has been passing the quality tests for PAS 110 since the plant opened. However, we have been waiting to see how the UK was going to treat the question of silage silage pasteurisation before modifying our process. Agrivert is a great supporter of PAS standards. We now work with 17 local authorities, many of whom attach great value to PAS certification. Securing PAS 110 is not only important for our clients but also for our agricultural stakeholders."
