In September 2016, Andigestion held an open day at its new site in Bishops Cleeve giving local residents a tour of its newest food recycling plant at Bishops Cleeve, Gloucestershire, and the opportunity to learn more about how food waste recycling and anaerobic digestion is benefiting the local community.

The plant processes leftover waste food from commercial and residential outlets across Gloucestershire and turns it into green energy for use in local homes. The process also produces a digestate, which is a nutrient-rich fertiliser used by nearby farms helping to produce sustainable locally sourced food and produce.

At full capacity, the plant produces enough gas to supply up to 5,000 homes, which is the entire housing population of Bishops Cleeve.
