Creating enough power to heat 2000 homes
At Fernbrook Bio, we’re passionate about creating something positive amount of waste this country generates.
We find it shocking that over 40% of the UKs food waste is simply dumped in landfill sites, when it has the potential to create clean, green energy to power our businesses and homes. So, in 2008 we set about changing that.
Using our experience as commercial builders, we invested our time and energy into developing our first Anaerobic Digestion plant at Rothwell Lodge Farm in Kettering, Northamptonshire. Today this plant processes over 40,000 tonnes of organic waste every year, creating enough electricity to power 2000 homes! The plant itself is also powered entirely by the energy generated on-site.
Now that is a change for the better. And we’re proud of it.
