Interview with Michael Eavis – PowerCompact for Worthy Farm
During the project process of Worthy Farm, BIOGEST interviewed Michael Eavis, the Founder and Manager of the Glastonbury Festival, who encourages green energy use and highlights the importance of the biogas and biomethane business sector.
How did you find out about the company BIOGEST?
Micheal Eavis: We have a dairy farm of 1,000 heads which produces lots and lots of slurry. We also have the Glastonbury Festival on the farm which I’ve been running for 50 years. I was very keen to convert the slurry into electricity and having seen a similar set-up on a farm a few miles away, I decided to follow that particular design.
Which reasons did you have for choosing BIOGEST as a technology supplier?
Micheal Eavis: First of all, we were impressed by the local reference plant we saw, which had already been in operation for more than 4 years, with a performance of more than 90%. I also liked that BIOGEST has an office in the UK and is able to provide fast support in case of a problem.
What impacts on the environment does the biogas plant have from your point of view?
Micheal Eavis: The major benefit for us is the processing of the slurry, as it will be degraded and become a fertilizer which we can spray on our fields. Of course, the electricity production also has a positive impact, as we are producing renewable energy to use and export to the grid.
How would you describe the profitability of the investment in a biogas plant?
Micheal Eavis: The profitability of the biogas plant is definitely a bonus, however, our main goal was to make the farm greener.
