Frequently Asked Questions For The Disposal Of Food Waste

What Is Anaerobic Digestion Of Food Waste?

Anaerobic digestion is a process by which microorganisms break down food waste in the absence of oxygen, producing biogas and digestate. The biogas can be used to generate electricity and heat, while the digestate is a nutrient-rich substance that can be used as a fertiliser. This process not only helps in managing waste but also in creating renewable energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

What Happens To Food Waste?

Once collected, food waste undergoes several processes depending on the most suitable method for the type of waste:

  • Anaerobic Digestion: Organic waste is converted into energy and compost in an oxygen-free environment.
  • Composting: Food waste can also be composted to produce a soil conditioner, enriching soil quality without chemical fertilisers.
  • Recycling into Animal Feed: Some processed food waste is suitable for conversion into animal feed.

Through these methods, your business’s food waste is transformed into valuable resources, reducing environmental impact and supporting sustainability initiatives.
