AD waste treatment at Fawdon
Following a £3.2 million investment, the liquid and solid waste produced by our Fawdon factory is treated by a new anaerobic digestion (AD) plant. The AD plant uses naturally occurring bacteria to digest the waste, creating biogas. The biogas fuels a combined heat and power engine which provides power for the site. Thanks to this innovative process, Fawdon is now a zero-waste factory, and discharges no effluents to the local water environment.
