At Earnside Energy we specialise in transforming organic waste such as food and garden waste into useful resources; primarily compost products that go back into agriculture to grow organic crops, and green energy, that helps secure Scotland’s future renewable energy requirements.
Food & Green Co-Mingled Waste
Recently the Government has increased its emphasis on the country becoming a “Zero Waste Society”. At Earnside Energy we cater for local authorities that have elected to co-mingle their food waste arisings, with an existing green waste collection scheme.
Our in-vessel composting process has been operational since 2005, providing a useful and reliable service for local authorities. This transforms co-mingled food & green waste into high-quality compost, that is then used by the local agricultural community around Perthshire.
Our plant produces enough renewable green electricity to power around 4000 homes across Scotland.
The biogas produced through our process can also be upgraded to biomethane which can then be pressurised. This compressed biomethane product can be used as a renewable transport fuel, as an alternative to fossil fuel derived diesel.
