ReFood UK Anearobic Digestion Plant Open Day

19th August 2012

ReFood UK Ltd would like to invite Sheffield Chamber members to join us at our Anaerobic Digestion Plant 2 day Open Day.

With almost 20 million tonnes of food waste generated each year across the UK, it is crucial that we find more sustainable solutions to landfill. The UK is committed to increasing its level of renewable energy production in order to limit climate change. Anaerobic Digestion (AD) is one solution that is going to help us deliver on two sustainability goals reducing waste going to landfill and generating renewable energy. ReFood is the European market leader in the field of disposal of organic waste from kitchens, canteens and retailers. From every stage in the food chain, ReFood recycles food waste via AD into green electricity, heat and nutrient-rich fertiliser. ReFood's first AD plant in the UK is at PDM's headquarters in Doncaster. Construction of the new plant started in September 2010 and was officially opened in September 2011. ReFood has developed advanced AD technology, which takes an established agricultural process to an industrial scale. Each ReFood AD plant can recycle 45,000 tonnes of food and drink waste each year. With innovative systems to de-package retail food wastes, ReFood is able to handle all types of waste food products and ensure that all materials are separated for recycling. If you have a particular interest in Environmental issues, waste management or perhaps have a business that produces food waste we would love to see you. This is your opportunity to see a state of the art, award winning working AD plant and network with representatives from local and national companies. The event is free to attend with refreshments provided throughout both days. If you have any enquiries please call Laura Moffatt on 07909 906 726 or 01302 390 968. To register for this event please email names of attendees and date attending to
