Slurry ‘Green gas’ to heat 1m homes New €1.6 billion plan to be rolled out
Around one million Irish homes are to be heated with ‘green gas’ from slurry as part of a new €1.6 billion plan to tackle climate change.
The state company Ervia, which owns the gas network, plans to roll out a network of 375 plants which will produce gas by mixing up farm slurry and silage in special tanks.
Instead of methane being emitted into the atmosphere, this ‘green gas’ will be used to heat homes instead.
