Food Waste Recycling

Convert your food waste into a clean energy source

Food Waste Recycling

Uneaten food sent to rot in landfill is a major contributor to climate change. In fact, if food waste were a country, it would be the third largest producer of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, behind China and the USA!

But more than that, by having your food waste sent to landfill, your organisation is also missing out on a large cost-saving opportunity as food waste is actually far cheaper to recycle than it is to send to landfill.

One simple alternative to sending your food waste to landfill is a process known as anaerobic digestion. Our anaerobic digesters, installed on your site, can help you reduce the amount you send to landfill. They cut your carbon emissions and can even generate an income for your organisation. That’s because, right now, food waste yields the highest economic returns of any organic waste product, which means that by making a pledge to tackle climate change, you could be earning your company not just green credentials, but also a profit on your waste.

The UK has been a world leader in developing advanced new biogas technologies. These technologies utilise food waste and convert the captured methane into a renewable source of clean energy. The non-gas parts of the food waste become a rich fertiliser which can then be sold for use on farmland.

By moving to this closed-loop way of processing your organisation’s food waste, you make immediate savings on having your food waste collected and sent to landfill. But more than that, you can cash in on the next big renewable energy source – food waste –  and build your brand’s environmental reputation as a forward-thinking company for the future.


  • Are anaerobic digesters expensive to install?

    No, all equipment is installed at zero upfront cost to our clients. The costs of all services and equipment that we supply are included in your one, fixed, monthly fee.

  • How much space will the anaerobic digester take up on my site?

    Anaerobic digesters come in a large variety of sizes and capacities, to suit any type of site.

  • Can this piece of equipment help my organisation meet legislative targets?

    Absolutely it can. The EC Landfill Directive 99/31/EC set out mandatory targets on waste sent to landfill, including the reduction by 35% on 1995 figures of the amount of biodegradable waste sent to landfill by 2020.
