Our anaerobic digestion plant in Hemswell is situated across 5 acres of rural Lincolnshire farmland.

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 provide food waste management solutions and renewable energy sources for many industries including local authorities, food manufacturers and producers, waste management companies, waste brokers, commercial food waste, local governments and distributors.

At Greencore Wisbech we have been using Local Generation for over 7 years for the disposal of our food and effluent waste and I can’t fault the excellent service we receive. Even on the odd occasion when things don’t go to plan Local Generation are always at the end of the phone willing to go the extra mile to help, I couldn’t ask for anymore; a fab team to work with.

We requested a collection of a unit we’d had on-site for a week and a little later that day we required another one collecting at late notice. Your driver arrived ahead of the scheduled time, was polite, helpful and friendly; he was the same driver, who last week had shown me how to set up the unit. Your service is prompt, reliable and communication is easy with you all – highly recommended.
