Once recycled food waste creates bio-fertiliser and biogas, used to generate electricity, heat and transport fuel.
How is food waste recycled?
After it is collected food waste is taken to an anaerobic digestion (AD) facility. Here the liners are removed and sent to an energy from waste plant and turned into electricity. Through AD, micro-organisms break down the food waste producing biogas, which is collected and used to generate electricity, heat and transport fuel. The leftover material also creates biofertiliser that can be used in farming and land regeneration.
