Rural businesses finding fuel alternatives

Rural businesses are learning how to wean themselves off fossil fuels thanks to a three-day conference at the University of Ulster.

Academics and researchers from the Faroe Islands, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Ireland, Scotland, Iceland and Greenland are gathering at the University this week to discuss innovative alternative energy solutions.

The University is involved with a biomass facility based on a willow tree plantation in Limavady that powers a whole farm and an additional business on the site.

Delegates will visit the site as part of the conference.
