Anaerobic Digestion at Sunnyside

As part of our environmentally friendly ethos, we have installed an anaerobic digester at Hemel Food Garden. This means we can now turn our organic garden and food waste into a methane-rich gas to use as fuel. The digester also produces fertiliser from the digestate, a source of nutrients which can be spread on the vegetables and plants we grow on site. The biogas produced will be used in a burner for cooking.

We’d like to thank Santander Foundation for donating £5,000 and Amazon £2,000; without them we would not have been able to get the digester installed and up and running.
