Hounslow Transfer Station

Hounslow Transfer Station

Making AD available to smaller producers of food waste.

Producers of food waste are always on the lookout for the most cost effective and sustainable route for their waste and this is where Biogen’s anaerobic digestion service fits the bill perfectly.

However, many organisations assume they can’t enjoy the benefits because of the relatively small amounts of waste they produce. Or because the distance to the nearest AD facility makes transport costs too expensive.

Our waste transfer stations, like the one in Hounslow, West London, offer smaller food waste producers a practical, cost effective and sustainable solution.  Food waste from a variety of household and commercial sources, including the catering industry, is bulked together here and transported by bulk-tippers to one of our AD plants. Around 20-28 tonne loads can be transported at any one time.

A cost-effective and carbon friendly service

This unique service means that small restaurants, offices, schools, hotels and a range of other establishments are all able to access a cost-effective and carbon friendly method of food waste recycling which produces renewable energy for the national grid and a valuable fertiliser for crops. Customers already making use of our waste transfer station at Hounslow include: Hounslow, Richmond and Ealing Councils (part of West London Waste Authority), food manufacturers Bakkavör and Adelli and Westfield London Shopping Centre.

“Bakkavör has been working with Biogen since 2008 to divert waste from landfill and reduce our carbon impact on the environment.  Through their monthly reporting they show us how we have performed against the optimum and what improvements we can make.  As Biogen continues to develop more sites, we are able to achieve more local and therefore more carbon efficient recycling for the otherwise unusable by-products of our food manufacturing processes.” Georgina Willis, Category Purchasing Manager, Bakkavör
