Anaerobic Digestion - Educational Project

Interestingly a small scale AD plant has been installed in a school in Central London, processing only 5kgs of food waste a day. This Project was a great practical way of educating young people that food waste is an 'energy source'.

The project, run by the Petchey Academy in Hackney East London, was to design & build an anaerobic biodigester. School dinner leftovers go in one end and biogas and plant fertiliser is produced at the other.
