Building starts on anaerobic digestion plant in March

A GREEN energy company has started building its first anaerobic digestion plant in March.

The plant being built by Local Generation will transform 30,000 tonnes of both packaged and unpackaged food waste each year into clean, green energy.

It is being built on the Wisbech Road site of its sister company, Fenmarc - vegetable producers and packagers - and should be fully operational later this year.

Nick Waterman, Director of Local Generation, said: “This is an exciting time for the Local Generation business. It is all systems go now to get our first AD plant up and running. We are really looking forward to seeing our plant take shape.”

He added that the team is really looking forward to establishing a sustainable alternative to landfill that will benefit the region’s economy and its ecology.
