Currently, a large number of compostable products end up in the landfill. StormFisher Environmental is working to change that. They have been operating a biogas plant in London, which harnesses methane from food waste to create renewable energy. They also use valuable nutrients from the waste to create an organic fertilizer. Talk about reusing! Over the next ten years, they estimate they can avoid the release of 37.5 million tonnes of CO2e emissions, the equivalent of taking 7,500 cars off the road. This is all while saving food processors over fifty million dollars.
