UK firm Andigestion celebrates milestones
Andigestion, based in Gloucestershire, injected a record 11 million cubic metres (m3) of biomethane gas into the national grid – enough to power 10,000 homes for a year.
The company processes commercial and domestic food waste, collected from all over Gloucestershire and the South West of England. It is then taken to the firm’s recycling plant near Cheltenham, where up to 34,000 tonnes of food waste are processed annually.
Additionally, Andigestion recently commissioned a new 1,000m3 mixing tank at its Bishops Cleeve site, enabling the firm to double its capacity for food waste recycling, and reached 100,000 food waste wheelie-bin collections from commercial customers.
Mike Lowe, operations director at Andigestion, said: “Despite the challenges of COVID-19 and the lockdown, we’re very pleased and proud that we have been able to respond to the increased demand for food waste recycling so positively.”
