Promoting food waste to energy conversion to the UK’s meat industry

Biotechnical Energy was delighted to be an exhibitor at the Meat Up 2015 show last week and used the opportunity to introduce the industry to our amazing food waste to energy conversion systems…

The Meat Up show – held at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire – brings together meat producers, suppliers and other experts for two days packed with seminars, panels, demonstrations and more.

We were delighted to attend in order to spread the word about our food waste to energy conversion products which, we believe, have significant potential for meat producers and others in the food production industry.

Our systems enable producers not only to reduce waste by up to 80% overnight but to then use what’s left – the digestate – as a biomass fuel to create heat energy on site.

Here’s a diagram of the process




The whole process takes any raw organic waste and converts it into heat energy on site in less than 24 hours. As well as reducing waste disposal costs by 80% and providing ‘free’ fuel, the process is also eligible for RHI* so you can actually make money in three ways. Coupled with the low installation costs and lower CAPEX than traditional AD systems this means you can save money from day one and typical payback will be just three to four years (after which the system can continue to generate a significant profit for years to come).

Whilst saving money is a key benefit, our food waste to energy conversion process also means you have less mess to deal with, need less waste storage space and have a much simpler process as it is ABP CAT 3 compliant and can treat from 200kg to 10 tonnes of any kind of organic waste per day.

We were delighted with the reaction from other delegates at the event and the enthusiasm they had for the idea of converting their waste to energy.

Speaking after the show, Biotechnical Energy’s Ian Sawle said:

“Meat production involves a lot of waste which can be very expensive to remove and dispose of. Our food waste to energy systems are a perfect and tested solution enabling customers to reduce costs, reduce hassle and simplify their processes.

We are delighted with the reaction we have received from delegates at Meat Up and look forward to developing relationships in the sector further in coming weeks and months.”
