Food Waste Separators with Less Destructive Depackaging & Pulping Pre-treat SSOHW Better

Prior to anaerobic digestion, new food waste separators with advanced depackaging and pulping technology, when used to pre-treat Source-Separated Organic Household Waste (SSOHW), improve the purity of the organic pulp. Reject output streams were also purer than for earlier systems based on milling and shredding. That’s according to research by the Department of Environmental Engineering, […]

Biogas Buses – What are they? and How are they Environmentally Friendly?

Biogas buses are catching on. What could be better than using biogas from the anaerobic digestion process to power transport fleets? The energy source is renewable, made from waste by-products, and the methane used in this fuel is clean-burning. Using it instead of using a fossil fuel like diesel removes the concerns for air pollution […]

Stop Plastic Pollution on Land – A Plea for Tighter PAS 110 Rules

Here we lend our support to a move for tighter PAS 110 Rules to stop plastic pollution on land, as we believe that the UK’s specification for natural biogas fertiliser needs urgently updating to incorporate controls on the permissible amount of plastic. The ocean plastic pollution problem can only be solved if society puts a […]
