What are the benefits of sending food waste to anaerobic digestion plant (where food waste is treated)?

It is better for our environment. Creating renewable energy – anaerobic digestion is one way of recycling food waste and makes fertiliser, electricity and heat.

Saving resources – it takes a huge amount of energy and water to grow food and even more resources such as fuel to transport the food to supermarkets across the country. Throwing away food means that we have wasted all of this effort and resource.
