Anaerobic digestion is a process that uses bacteria to break down organic material, such as industrial food waste, into biogas. This biogas is used to power turbines that generate electricity.
Many food and beverage manufacturers have adopted sustainability goals to achieve zero landfill. These green initiatives would be incredibly costly and challenging without anaerobic digestion.
Food and beverage manufacturers value anaerobic digestion because they care about the environment – but also because they care about the sustainability of their company.
Sustainability is about eliminating wastes and risks of all kinds and anaerobic digestion does both.
