AD plant breaks ground in Doncaster

Construction has started on a biogas plant in Bentley, Doncaster, UK.

Behind the scheme, which will convert 45,000 tonnes of food waste a year into renewable electricity and heat, is UK-based food chain by-product recycler Prosper de Mulder.

The project broke ground on 13 September and, when the build is completed nine months from now, will create 35 jobs for the people of Bentley.

‘We’re delighted to see the start of construction of the ReFood plant. This venture helps to add another sustainable recycling solution to our existing portfolio,' said Philip Simpson, commercial director at Prosper de Mulder. ‘As a result we’re able to divert significant tonnages of food waste from landfill, where the methane that we can capture in the AD process could otherwise end up in the atmosphere so it’s a beneficial process on so many levels.’
