Biogas from food waste – anaerobic digestion for cost reduction and sustainable food manufacturing

Biogas from food waste – anaerobic digestion for cost reduction and sustainable food manufacturing

Food manufacturers are turning to biogas installations to reduce waste, energy and operating costs, CO2 emissions, and to produce green energy that can be sold.  Biogas from food waste and sustainable manufacturing in the Food industry was the focus of a lecture at Warwick University by PM Group’s Barry McDermott and Campbell Stevens.

Addressing the Institute of Engineering & Technology (IET) and the UK Midlands Manufacturing Group, their presentation provided an overview of sustainability in the manufacturing industry with a focus on energy supply; government drivers and funding tariffs; anaerobic digestion technology; how biogas can contribute to greater energy security, lower unit costs, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and reduced carbon footprint for products; how biogas generation can assist in achieving corporate and customer environmental  sustainability goals. They also provided case study examples of anaerobic digestion technology implementation within the food manufacturing sector.
