The hotel has partnered with recycling business William Tracey Group to recycle food waste into electricity.

The project will use anaerobic digestion (AD) to treat the waste to produce renewable energy and organic fertilizer.

The William Tracey Group runs recycling and waste operations across Scotland and is now working with clients to deal with food waste through anaerobic digestion.

William Tracey Group’s Bobby Gavin said: “When we started working with the team at the hotel, there were already many recycling initiatives in place but we have been able to take them that step further by providing a bespoke plan and they are now achieving recycling rates of around 67% compared to 40% the previous year.”

The Radisson Blu is the first city centre hotel to adopt this new service as part of its company’s environmental strategy and the new project has improved their recycling rates.

The hotel’s general manager, Graeme Gibson said: “The hotel team is very excited about our latest figures in terms of recycling scores.

“Our partnership with the William Tracey Group has driven forward the improvements in our recycling program.

“The support and constant feedback from their team is crucial to our business and they are flexible in terms of catering for our needs and challenges.”
