Before you start

To use the checker, you need:

  • information about your business (for example, number of employees and turnover)
  • information about the project (for example, volume of slurry or digestate, the impact the project will have)
  • a list of the items you’d like to buy for the project
  • an estimate of the total cost of the items

If you do not enter any information for more than 15 minutes, your application will time out and you will have to start again.
