Market Expectations and Requirements for Digestate

13th December 2016

With the increase in processing organic materials through anaerobic digestion (AD), WRAP is working to fully understand and evaluate the opportunities and markets available for the resulting digestates.

Key points
The linkage of digestate processing experience and a market sector based approach to distribution seems a clear opportunity for synergy
The AD enhancements review (WRAP,2012f) indicates that research and delivery of digestate derived products may be more advanced in some European countries than in the UK
A limited evidence base for compositional information poses a threat to the uptake of digestate



This will ensure that each digestate market sector has the necessary evidence, and understanding of benefits, to make informed decisions on selecting the most appropriate materials for their needs. Producers of these materials will also have more defined quality requirements for the various existing and emerging markets.
