THE Ulster Farmers’ Union would like to remind farmers that the closing date for submitting applications to the Biomass Processing Challenge Fund (BPCF) is 4pm on Friday 30 November 2012.
UFU deputy president Ian Marshall said: “The Biomass Processing Challenge Fund has the potential to be very beneficial to local farmers providing up to 40 per cent of the cost of an eligible project with a maximum amount of £320,000 per project. The BPCF provides financial assistance to adopt renewable technologies such as: biomass boilers with more than 30 kw of thermal output; combined heat and power systems fuelled with biomass; anaerobic digestion systems; and other proven technologies that use biomass to generate heat and/or power.”
Under the second tranche applicants may apply for funds individually, or as a group. For more information about the BPCF or if you would like to apply visit: http://www.dardni.gov.uk/index/grants-and-funding/biomass-processing-challenge-fund.htm.
