ReFood’s Dagenham AD Plant Is Open For Business
A new state-of-the-art anaerobic digestion (AD) facility was officially opened in Dagenham on Friday (7 July). Operated by ReFood, part of the SARIA Group, site is capable of processing more than 160,000 tonnes of food waste every year, generating 14m cubic metres of biogas. It will convert inedible food waste, collected from customers in and around London, into sustainable biofertiliser and enough renewable energy to power 12,600 homes per annum.
As well as displacing 73,600 tonnes of CO2, the equivalent of taking 14,431 cars off the road, ReFood Dagenham will support Transport for London’s (TfL) Clean Air Action Plan through the generation of biomethane for gas-powered vehicles.
