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.

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.
