Ecotricity’s Green Gas Mills ‘the antidote to fracking’


Following several years of research and development, Ecotricity has launched its Green Gas Mills concept. Using anaerobic digestion to convert grass into gas, the company’s first project will be submitted into planning later this year. Each of the Green Gas Mills will power 6,000 homes. “Our Green Gas Mills will produce gas that is carbon neutral, supports food production and is sustainable – with the process actually improving the local environment rather than damaging it,” says Ecotricity founder Dale Vince. www.ecotricity.co.uk
