All plants

Hemswell Biogas food waste recycling plant is located on a 5-acre site on the edge of the Hemswell Industrial Estate. This anaerobic digestion (AD) site has the capacity to recycle and to process 90,000 tonnes of food waste and organic materials per year, turning them into biogas. Producing both gas and electricity with the capacity of 6MWe, and valuable bio fertiliser soil products. This directly benefits the crops which grow around the site, and vastly reduces the need for artificial fertilisers for the surrounding farms.

We were delighted by our recent service experience with your team, the guy in the stores looked after us really well and explained how to access the site through your weighbridge to reach the control panel. We know what to expect next time and we will be in touch again soon to do it all over again – thanks again!

The food waste pilot is proving to have been a great success. The scheme has achieved most of its original objectives. This will benefit the LWP, giving it greater confidence, based on real evidence that food waste collections in Lincolnshire would be accepted by the public and will deliver the overall levels of benefits identified.
