Kitchen waste from Ealing, Hounslow and Richmond will be collected from the doorstep and taken away to be turned into electricity through anaerobic digestion.

The West London Waste Authority struck the deal with BiogenGreenfinch who will send the power to the national grid from their Northamptonshire plant.

The deal will mean food that would have been sent to landfill, and produce methane, will be recycled.

This process will generate enough electricity to continuously power almost three thousand homes.

Philip Greenaway from BiogenGreenfinch said: “We already know the scheme will be very popular with local people and that it makes financial and environmental sense.

“We’re also so pleased for everyone here at BiogenGreenfinch who’ve put in three years hard graft on developing AD in the UK. We’re confident it’s a technology with fantastic potential.”
