Alpha:Logic Celebrate First Food Waste Collections
Aug 16, 2012
Alpha:Logic, one of the leading waste management companies in Plymouth, marked the start of the Food:Logic service, on Thursday 12th July with a celebratory launch party.
The event, hosted at The Seco Lounge in Royal William Yard, saw 60 businesses from across Plymouth invited to mark the start of the new food waste recycling scheme. After a fantastic start to the scheme, which has seen an extraordinary level of interest from local businesses, the party was held to thank customers for their continued support.
Neil Stallard, Director at Alpha:Logic said: “We’re overwhelmed with the level of support that we’ve received to date for the Food:Logic scheme and are delighted to have already doubled our collection targets prior to the first collection earlier this month.”
“It is so encouraging to see so many companies committed to reducing the environmental impact of their business activities and we hope that this will continue as we work together towards making a greener city.”
“Following the delivery of our new food waste collection vehicle earlier this month, the first Food:Logic collections have begun and the city’s food waste is now on its way to becoming a new sustainable energy source.”
One of the first schemes of its type in the region, Food:Logic reduces the strain on local landfills by creating a more environmentally-friendly way of recycling food waste. Utilising the technology at Langage Farm’s new £3.4 million anaerobic digestion plant, Food:Logic provides an eco-friendly food waste disposal solution.
The plant, which officially opened in July 2011, uses bacteria organisms that break down the food waste and create the by-product, methane gas. This gas is then used to drive an electrical generator resulting in electrical power which is used to power the farm’s factory. The excess power is then diverted back to the National Grid.
