Food waste recycler PDM has announced a £91m investment programme in its UK facilities.
The Doncaster-based firm said it would build anaerobic digestion plants in Widnes and Dagenham at a cost of £44m.
It will spend £29m upgrading animal by-product rendering plants in Widnes and Nuneaton, as well as £18m on improving pet food processing sites in Widnes, Doncaster and Nottingham.
Chief executive Andy Smith said: “This is a significant investment in new and existing facilities in the UK that will ensure we remain at the forefront of food waste and animal by-product processing.
“This investment will future-proof our business and give customers the reassurance that they are dealing with the best in the industry, while allowing us to expand significantly our operations in the UK.”
