The best thing we can do with our food is to enjoy it. But some food waste is unavoidable and have you ever wondered what happens to the contents of your brown food caddies? In Cardiff, we turn food waste into a carbon neutral biofuel through a process called Anaerobic Digestion. You can find out more about how Anaerobic Digestion works here.
This process is happening right here in Cardiff, keeping transport miles to an absolute minimum. In fact your food waste creates enough renewable energy to power 4000 homes, turning waste into a resource, benefitting the fight against climate change.
The facility officially opened with a celebratory event on the 8th March 2017. The event, starting at City Hall and finishing at the Kelda site marked the grand opening with the unveiling of plaque.
Did you know that all raw and cooked foods can be recycled in your brown food caddy and that recycling 6 tea bags creates enough energy to boil the kettle for another cuppa?
