Biffa awards AD digestate recycling contract to 4Recycling

4Recycling has been awarded a three-year contract by Biffa to recycle digestate from a new anaerobic digestion (AD) facility at Poplars, near Cannock in Staffordshire.

Production of digestate from the facility, which has the capacity to process 120,000 tonnes of waste per annum, is likely to commence later in the year.

The digestate will be produced to PAS 110 standard and 4Recycling will provide a technical, transport and recycling service for both solids and liquids working with local contractors and landowners to provide a continuous service for the plant.

4R Group's managing director, Mike Holt, said: "We are really pleased to be supporting Biffa on this important contract.

"Our team have decades of experience in developing recycling outlets for organic materials, delivering huge carbon savings by substituting out fossil-derived fertilizers in agriculture or bringing brownfield land back into use."
