Derby AD Facility

The Derby AD plant is the newest of Severn Trent Green Power's facilities, commissioned in January 2019. It can process up to 50,000 tonnes a year of household and commercial food wastes, which includes packaged and unpackaged goods. The plant produces biomethane which is injected in to the gas grid and an excellent bio-fertiliser which is spread to land.

All of our AD facilities are approved to process category 3 animal by-products enabling them to accept a wide variety of food wastes.

At present (during commissioning) we can recycle:

  • Production wastes from the manufacture of food and beverages; both solids and liquids
  • Packaged food waste such as surplus, spoiled or off-spec stock, out of date products, stock clearances, factory breakdowns or QC failed products
  • Food collected on trade waste collection rounds
  • Restaurant and catering wastes
  • Bakery and bread products
  • Domestic, kerbside collected food waste
  • Liquids and very wet wastes such as compost leachate, alcohols, fats and oils

Pre-booked waste deliveries can be received at the following times:

0700 - 1800: Monday – Friday

0700 - 1100: Saturdays
