A great February for Capitas; along with a number of other energy projects, we are pleased to have supported our customer, Northwick Estate, with further investment in their Anaerobic Digestion infrastructure, enabling an estimated CO2 saving of 26,000 tonnes per annum.
The Northwick Estate group processes in excess of 200,000 tonnes of food waste per annum via its Anaerobic Digestion plants, using waste food from local commercial and industrial businesses as feedstock to produce biogas, which is then used to generate green electricity.
With the support of Capitas, Northwick Estate were able to upgrade their production capacity of solid packaged food processed per week to generate significant annualised savings. Each tonne of food waste recycled by anaerobic digestion as an alternative to landfill prevents between 0.5 and 1.0 tonne of CO2 re-entering the earth’s atmosphere, meaning the project could also save in excess of 26,000 tonnes of CO2 each year.
Capitas were able to implement solutions to facilitate payments to the customer’s preferred suppliers, based outside of the UK mainland, and structure the repayments in a way which makes the project cash generative for Northwick Estate from the outset.
