Waste management firm LondonWaste is consulting with residents and local businesses about plans to build an anaerobic digestion facility at its Edmonton EcoPark based in north London.
LondonWaste is 50 per cent owned by waste management firm Sita and 50 per cent owned by the North London Waste Authority.
More than 36,000 leaflets will be distributed to homes and businesses surrounding the EcoPark.
LondonWaste managing director David Sargent said: We are looking to introduce anaerobic digestion at the EcoPark, which can turn food waste into power, heat and fertiliser. It is clean, green and efficient and has been particularly welcomed by environmental experts.
Our plans for anaerobic digestion are at an early stage and we will be taking on everyones comments on board as we develop our plans further. When we have more detailed plans we will be able to consult people again.
