Anaerobic digestion is a biological process during which microorganisms digest organic waste such as food waste, farm manure, or sewage sludge, and turn it into biogas and biological fertiliser. Biogas from anaerobic digestion is an important source of renewable energy. There are currently more than 600 operational anaerobic digestion plants in the UK, and their number is set to grow significantly in the years to come. Therefore, anaerobic digestion is a key green technology that is well-positioned to deliver immediate action on climate change and to contribute towards reaching Net Zero targets.
