At BioteCH4 we operate a number of food waste treatment facilities across the UK, enabling up to 590,000 tonnes of organic waste per year to be recycled or reused as biogas or biofertiliser. We currently have 6 AD plants, including our largest anaerobic digestion plant in Cambridgeshire.
Set on a 7-acre site, this state-of-the-art anaerobic digestion facility has an annual processing capacity of 120,000 metric tonnes. The renewable energy it creates from the food waste generates up to 5MWe of electricity and biogas.

Anaerobic digestion (AD), or the process of breaking down waste by microorganisms in the absence of air, is one of the best ways to manage food waste. It is not limited in its scope, as composting can be. And, it produces a sustainable biofuel as well as a biofertiliser in the process. The best part is that almost anything that is organic can be put in the mix. You’ll notice the ‘almost’.
Understanding the long term environmental and economic benefits of food waste recycling can deliver huge benefits to a business, the local environment and long-term sustainability.
It is easy to dismiss the benefits of food waste recycling for a business. Since food is a perishable item, it’s only natural that it might go bad before it is used. However, investing in food waste services that help manage your food waste can help your business in many ways.
