From Waste to Woodchip – How Demand for Alternative and Sustainable Fuel is Heating Up!
As specialists in electrical and electronic instrumentation, Algo Instruments have long been familiar with the demands of the complex equipment at Andigestion’s food waste recycling plant in Devon – but what they hadn’t realised was that there was potential to make huge savings on their own heating bills simply by switching to sustainable woodchip produced by Andigestion!
Food Waste Recycling a Critical Part of Brend Hotels ‘ Commitment to the Environment’
The award-winning Brend Hotels Group is a name synonymous with luxury. Its collection of 11 exceptional hotels and stunning restaurants in Devon and Cornwall are renowned for their fabulous locations, outstanding service and fine cuisine. Highly experienced chefs work tirelessly to create fresh and innovative menus incorporating local and seasonal West Country produce all year round.
Food waste recycling is high priority for the Brend Group– not only are there the obvious health & safety implications if it is not managed properly, but guest comfort could be compromised if bad smells were allowed to develop. With the Group serving an average of 1,300 Sunday lunches alone each week, it’s critical that food waste is removed quickly and efficiently.
Food waste from each of the Brend hotels is collected by Andigestion once or twice a week depending on demand and taken to its recycling site at Holsworthy near Bude, where approximately 76,000 tonnes of the south west’s food waste is recycled each year.
