How we recycle your food waste

We use a process called Anaerobic Digestion (AD).

This process uses microorganisms to break down the food waste in an enclosed system, The absence of oxygen helps to break down the food waste.

The result is methane coming off which is collected and converted into biogas. Biogas is used to generate electricity or heat. The AD process also creates a nutrient-rich material which is used as a fertiliser for land regeneration.
