A State of the Art Anaerobic Digestion Facility

UK Anaerobic Digestion Plant

We operate a state-of-the-art Anaerobic Digestion Facility with an annual processing capacity of 75,000 metric tonnes. Established in 2011, the business produces renewable energy from a combination of commercial food waste and purpose grown energy crops.

Anaerobic Digestion

Anaerobic Digestion is a natural process whereby bacteria break down organic material in the absence of air, yielding a biogas (a mixture of carbon dioxide and methane) and digestate (a nitrogen-rich fertiliser).

A combined heat and power plant (generator) turns the biogas into electricity and heat. The electricity produced is fed directly to a local aluminium smelting company, which is one of the area’s largest employers.

If you're looking for secure and efficient commercial food disposal, you've come to the right place. Our facility can accept waste from all over the UK. We take items that are still in the packaging, including glass, and even if it's still on the pallet.
