Inspections Under SR2021 No 8: On-farm Anaerobic Digestion Facilities

We offer to provide Inspections Under SR2021 No 8: On-farm Anaerobic Digestion Facilities.

Under the UK EA’s new SR2021 regulation all currently operating on-farm biogas plants will need to be inspected by a qualified and experienced engineer and may also require the involvement of a qualified structural engineer. This must be done before October 2022.

IPPTS Associates offers an SR2021 compliant inspection service.

In the sections which follow we explain our experience and why we consider that we have the necessary experience and qualifications to do this:
