Food Waste To Community Energy
BHESCo is working with Brighton Paper Round to collect 50,000 tonnes of food and agricultural waste each year to supply biogas to approximately 10,000 homes. Brighton and Hove has lots of hotels, restaurants and pubs, and our local businesses produce large amounts of food waste which is simply thrown away.
This is a lost opportunity – why not use this important resource to generate low cost gas for our local community?
Anaerobic Digestion can be an effective way to turn food waste into energy by producing fuel such as biogas and biomethane which can then be converted into heat and electricity. Generating low cost, renewable energy could improve the quality of life of those unable to afford current fuel costs as well as contributing to a more sustainable future for Brighton and Hove.
