What happens at an anaerobic digestion plant?

At an anaerobic digestion plant, food waste is separated from its packaging. Microorganisms break down the food waste to produce green energy, which is used to create electricity or is injected into the gas grid network. Another by-product of food waste is digestate which is used as an organic biofertiliser, which is supplied to farmers to minimise the reliance on chemical fertiliser and reduce their carbon footprint.

Your food waste will need to be segregated, with separate bins and collections. Verigreen can ensure that your business is compliant with the new regulations with our food waste services.
