Landfill Ban & Anaerobic Digestion Options in Yorkshire & Humber

Anaerobic digestion opportunities grow for food processors By Rod Addy - Published: 27 July, 2009 (Food Manufacture website) Opportunities to divert waste from landfill are increasing for food processors as anaerobic digestion facilities spring up in Yorkshire. Selby Renewable Energy Park has secured planning permission for the UK’s biggest anaerobic digestion (AD) plant on a former Tate & Lyle factory site in Selby, north Yorkshire. The £20M plant could handle 165,000t of food waste annually from supermarkets, manufacturers, local authorities and caterers, generating 8Mw of energy, enough to power 10,800 homes.
