Derby Food Waste AD

We are responsible for the full EPC contract of this facility. It is designed to process up to 48,500 tonnes of food waste per year. We believe sustainable goals can serve as a catalyst for a continuous cycle of improvement which is why we take our role in environmental planning so seriously. This project will be designed, built and managed in line with our internationally recognised environmental, quality and health and safety procedures. Once this project has completed its final commissioning phase the biogas it produces will be predominantly upgraded to the quality standards required for injection into the National Grid.
