Food waste in Somerset to help light homes in the county

Food waste in Somerset will soon be helping to light homes in the county. A new biomass plant will make energy from the household food waste we throw away.

Every time you put potato peelings or old cabbage leaves in those little brown plastic caddies for the recycling teams to collect you will be helping to create power, courtesy of gas producing microbes.
