Benefits of Anaerobic Digestion for Food Producers

Commercial Benefits

Treating waste through our anaerobic digestion process is significantly cheaper than sending it to a landfill site or a composting plant. We have developed our systems so we can process waste for around a third of the cost of sending it to landfill, ensuring that your disposal costs are greatly reduced. Nearly all food waste streams that are sent to landfill can be processed through the AD process but if you’re unsure if your waste is suitable then please get in touch.

Andigestion can process both packaged and unpackaged waste, ensuring that you minimise the amount of waste being sent to landfill. Our reporting systems allow us to inform you of how much waste you are producing on a weekly basis. Using this data can help you minimise your wastage by examining long term trends – for example increased wastage from the manufacture of certain products or at certain times of the year.

Our plants are able to process:

Environmental Benefits

Reduce the amount of waste you send to landfill and reduce your greenhouse gas emissions

Organic waste that is sent to landfill allows methane to be released directly into the atmosphere. Methane is around 20 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide and therefore far more harmful to the environment.

The AD process captures the energy stored in the methane and turns it into useful electrical energy and heat and carbon dioxide. Furthermore the AD process ensures that vital, finite resources that are essential for plant growth are returned to land in a controlled way.
