Contracting for Biffa, Kirk Environmental constructed the UK's largest anaerobic digestion plant capable of processing up to 120,000 tonnes of food waste every year. The plant will produce enough energy to power up to 6,000 homes which will be diverted to the national grid.
Kirk Environmental constructed the 5 4800m² Glass Coated Steel Digestion Tanks complete with Stainless Steel Roofs. The plant is the flagship facility for a series of 'super' AD facilities that Biffa is hoping to develop.
The tanks will treat mainly commercial and industrial food waste from the likes of Sainsbury's and Bakkavor.
