Biofuel From Organic Food Waste
Here at Bio Collectors, we love a challenge. Constantly questioning the status quo, we’re always on the lookout for new ways to innovate and make food waste recycling easy and accessible for our customers across London.
So, what happens to your food once we collect it? First, it’s taken to our state-of-the-art anaerobic digestion facility, where it’s then transformed into clean energy and digestate products.
This means that nothing goes to landfill, demonstrating a truly closed-loop economy that reduces the country’s reliance on unsustainable practices, such as fracking.
What is Anaerobic Digestion?
The anaerobic digestion process takes roughly 72 hours to convert your excess food into usable resources for tomorrow – including biofuel, which we use to power our fleet of vehicles.
The term ‘anaerobic digestion’ refers to a series of processes whereby micro-organisms break down biodegradable materials free from oxygen. It’s an efficient and sustainable way of converting your business’ leftover food into usable energy.
