Wessex Water Anaerobic Digestion Study


On behalf of Wessex Water, Eunomia undertook a detailed study into the potential for investment in AD at their existing waste water treatment sites in the South West.

The work included an estimate of food waste ‘availability’ from municipal, commercial and industrial streams in the region. The study assessed existing food waste treatment capacity by way of competitor analysis and also explored competing management options, such as direct land-spreading and pet food production.

We also introduced the client to several potential partners which might provide waste collection services to supply feedstock to the chosen site(s).
