Food Waste Recycling Using Anaerobic Digestion To Generate Power

Food Waste Bin

Turn your food waste into clean energy and save money by reducing waste to landfill.

When food waste is sent to landfill it breaks down releasing methane which is a potent greenhouse gas harmful to the atmosphere.

Anaerobic Digestion is an environmentally friendly alternative in which micro-organisms break down food waste in the absence of oxygen, inside an enclosed tank. As it breaks down, it gives off 'bio-gas' that is collected and used to generate electricity and heat. The process also creates bio-fertiliser, which can be used in farming and land regeneration.

Not only is separating food waste good for the environment, removing biodegradable waste from your residual container will reduce its weight, avoid landfill tax and reduce disposal costs.

Q - What is Biogas?

A - Anaerobic Digestion is the natural biological process which converts organic materials into biogas and a useful fertiliser. The Biogas is used to generate electricity, to provide heat and cooling or alternatively cleaned to pipeline quality gas for use in vehicles or for injection into the national gas grid.
