Earnside Energy

Originally a composting facility, Earnside Energy’s AD facility was built and commissioned in 2011. Offering both anaerobic digestion and in-vessel composting, the site produces both a quality biofertiliser and compost in addition to renewable energy. This dual service means the plant has the ability to treat co-mingled garden and food waste.
