Andrews Chillers replace faulty unit on waste production site

A leading waste-to-product company in the Aylesbury area recently encountered a problem after some site equipment broke down unexpectedly. One of their anaerobic digestion plants stopped functioning at full capacity and consequently began processing waste at 50°C – too hot for the bacteria to produce gas.

In the present day, most companies in the UK are demonstrating a commitment to reducing their carbon footprint by curbing greenhouse gas emissions. The widely publicised battle against climate change has therefore played a vital role in the recent surge of anaerobic digestion plants opening across the country – with biogas presenting a perfect alternative to non-renewable energy sources.

Food waste is biologically broken down into methane and carbon dioxide before being converted into electricity, providing non-polluting power to thousands of people at a time.
