ReFood opened a new anaerobic digestion facility in London that is expected to produce 14 million cubic meters of biogas. It will provide power to around 12,600 households every year from processing 160,000 tonnes of wasted food.

The facility is the first of its kind in London to help curb carbon emissions processing the recycled food.


The plant is expected to remove 73,600 tons of CO2, the same quantity almost 12,000 cars produce during a year. It will also help reduce food waste expenses by 47% in comparison to a landfill disposal.


The Deputy Mayor for Environment and Energy said that they are determined to turn London into a carbon-free city by 2050 as well as increase recycling standards.
