The 45,000 tonne per year facility will process food waste from retailers, manufacturers and households to produce renewable electricity for up to 3,600 homes and a bio-fertiliser for nearby farmland.

BiogenGreenfinch and the owners of the farm, Wallington Farms have worked closely to plan for the use of the biofertiliser on local crops.

CEO Richard Barker said, “The anaerobic digestion plant will be built at an excellent strategic location near to the A1. We look forward to working with local food waste producers on this exciting project.”
