We accept the widest range of food waste in southern England.
Codford Biogas is an industrial processor of food waste located on the southern edge of Salisbury Plain, and has been designed to handle a wide range of waste feedstocks. Through a process called Anaerobic Digestion it utilises the waste as a raw material to create methane, which in turn is used to generate electricity that is 100% renewable and exported to the national grid. The waste can be in solid, liquid or sludge form, packaged or unpackaged. Out-of-date and damaged foods from retailers, supermarkets and factories or food waste from restaurants, pubs and hotels, offices, hospitals and schools. In addition, domestic kitchen food waste, waste from food processing factories, plus animal by-products (Category III) from the food industry, can all be processed by the plant.
Codford Biogas offer a fully traceable, safe and secure destruction process that will protect brand identity and black market re-sales. All organic waste is removed from its packaging by our depackaging machines and processed via anaerobic digestion. At both Codford and Northwick Power every part of the packaging is securely shredded, bulked and destroyed by incineration at an Energy from Waste facility with the benefits of generating energy from your waste packaging too. With this we can guarantee zero waste to landfill. All goods received are processed as soon as possible and monitored by CCTV, a Certificate of Destruction is issued for your audit trail and peace of mind.
So whatever the size of your business, we can help you improve your green credentials, and your bottom line, by treating your waste in the most environmentally sustainable method.
Waste recycling at the Codford Biogas site assures significant carbon reduction benefits.
- By processing a wide range of waste to produce electricity that is sold back to the grid,
- capturing excess heat generated by the plant to generate additional electricity, and provide heat for onsite industry that requires a heat process.
However, the most unique of these benefits is,
- the use of digestate bio-fertiliser, which is rich in Nitrogen (N), Phosphate (P) and Potassium (K). The digestate is pumped straight from the plant onto growing crops on the surrounding farmland, via a network of lagoons and underground pipes, without having to go back into a vehicle. The use of carbon-intensive synthetic fertiliser is reduced by 70-80% through this process, which is an important factor in Corporate Social Responsibility (“CSR”) programmes and raising customer awareness.
