Biogen win Recycling Business of the Year
Wednesday 1st June 2016
The awards ceremony for the Awards for Excellence from letsrecycle.com were recently held at The Landmark Hotel in Mayfair. BPR Group were lucky enough to accompany Biogen to the event. BPR Group works with Biogen on food waste recycling: we provide reliable food waste collections to hotels, restaurants and offices across London and the South East, and it’s important that this food waste is handled in the most environmentally friendly manner. Anaerobic digestion is the UK Government’s approved approach for processing food waste to achieve the greatest carbon savings, so we sought out a partner that only processed food in this way. In Biogen we have found a market leader, one that is always investing in improving processing technology and making their service better for their clients.
We were delighted when Biogen won “Recycling Business of the Year”. Their 7 state-of-the-art anaerobic digestion plants generate renewable energy for the national grid and produce bio-fertiliser for farmland. During 2016, Biogen will recycle a quarter of a million tonnes of food waste, saving it from landfill. That amount of food waste will help them to generate 11 megawatts of electricity. During 2015, the volume of food waste they recycled increased by 64% and they achieved a customer retention rate of 99%. BPR Group is one of Biogen’s happy customers and they support us to grow our food recycling business in London and to help our clients understand more about the anaerobic digestion process through tours of their plants.
