UK: Potato-powered energy plant goes live

A potato-powered energy plant has gone live in Carlisle as food manufacturing giant 2 Sisters Food Group launches a new sustainability plan that aims to generate 35,000 tonnes of carbon savings per year and slash the group’s carbon footprint. The new bio-refinery at 2 Sisters’ Cavaghan and Gray chilled food factory in Cumbria is the first waste-powered plant of its kind in the world to be used in food manufacturing, according to the group. The four-storey bio-refinery in Carlisle is powered using potato waste arising from the plant’s mashed potato and pie manufacturing lines. Diverting this waste to power production is expected to help 2 Sisters meet its goal of ensuring zero waste is sent to landfill by 2017. More
