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.

The disposal trial went very smoothly and with subsequent loads collected quickly and efficiently , Ben has been an easy associate to conduct business with. Finding a green route for disposal that is efficient and cost effective is always a challenge and we are very pleased that this is now possible

The site has worked with Local Generation for a number of years now for the disposal of all our food waste, and have been exceptionally pleased with the service and support we receive. We have found them to always be competitive in terms of pricing, and their ability and willingness to respond quickly to unplanned situations has proven invaluable.
Product Manager
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.
