VeriGreen provide a cost effective, closed-loop solution to surplus and waste food, maximising the potential of our clients’ waste and helping to minimise their environmental impact. We do this by collecting client’s food waste directly from their premises and transporting it to a local anaerobic digestion (AD) plant. Alternatively, we can often re-purpose surplus food for animal feed.
At the AD plant all the packaging waste is separated from the food waste and sent to an energy recovery plant. Micro-organisms break down the food waste, generating ‘green’ gas which is used to make electricity or is injected into the gas grid network. The green energy produced helps reduce the UK’s reliance on imported gas and power.
