MILTON KEYNES, United Kingdom Biogas from food waste collection into National Grid
Milton Keynes, one of the first local authorities in the United Kingdom (UK) to implement a waste recycling collection, has signed a contract with Renewable Power Systems to divert food and green waste from landfill and produce biogas to be fed into the national gas grid. The process of identifying
appropriate options and running trials was a solid start to a new approach with multiple energy and environmental benefits.
