> Summary of the organic waste collection and recycling process
Organic waste is treated using methanisation. This natural process of degradation of organic material by bacteria can break down organic waste in the absence of oxygen, into biogas consisting of methane which is then injected directly into the gas distribution network (ORES). This reaction also produces a residue known as digestate, which can be recovered as an agricultural fertiliser.
Biomethanisation enables us to accept more food waste than with compositing. This facilitates the management of this flow for our customers.
