How we turn food waste into good

We use the UK’s most advanced Anaerobic Digestion technology to provide an end-to-end recycling process that creates renewable energy and fertiliser from waste.

Step 1:

Placement of recycling bins

We provide our customers with a choice of recycling bins to store their food waste. These are available in 240 litre wheeled bins with optional larger containers if needed.

Step 2:

Food waste collection

Recycling bins are collected to a bespoke schedule by our own fleeet of liveried trucks and taken to our Anaerobic Digestion (AD) plant. All bins taken are replaced by fresh, sanitised ones to ensure the highest levels of hygiene are maintained at all times.

Step 3:

Recycling at our plant

On arrival at our plant, food waste is separated from any packaging. Then, using the AD process, organic matter is biologically broken down in an oxygen-free environment. During this process large amounts of heat and biogas is generated which is made up of methane and carbon dioxide.

Step 4:

Production of renewable energy

All our facilities are powered by heat and steam generated by renewable energy – not fossil fuels. And our London and Widnes plants export renewable energy directly to the National Grid.

Meanwhile, our environmentally friendly, nutrient-rich biofertiliser is sold to local farmers and growers. ReGrow directly displaces fossil fuel-based fertiliser, maintains the PAS110 quality protocol accreditation and upholds an exceptional level of quality and safety.
