Financial and environmental concerns
Food and beverage manufacturers often have the capability to generate their own energy. The nature of their product means that food waste is produced, which can then be used for anaerobic digestion to produce biogas. Yet what is the financial incentive for changing your current energy infrastructure?
With sustainability targets to think about, it can also be difficult to ensure that generating your own energy doesn't lead to a rise in carbon emissions, especially as consumer focus is on how businesses are preparing for Net Zero.
Why should my business generate its own energy?
Veolia can help you address these concerns, and enable you to turn your waste byproducts into useful energy for your business. This can save you money, improve manufacturing resilience and reduce CO2 emissions.
We can also provide the long term financing for your projects. These can include Anaerobic Digestion (AD) and biogas Combined Heat and Power (CHP) projects, which can enable you to utilise your food waste and minimise your consumption of carbon intensive natural gas and electricity.
Balancing environmental worries
To get the most out of generating your own energy, it's important to balance out any negative environmental effects. We can offer bespoke advice on how you can combine energy sources to ensure that you are getting the right mix of minimal environmental impact, cost-effectiveness and value for your business.
With increasing focus on the circular economy and closing the loop within your business, generating your own energy can allow your business to be more self-sufficient and to use your waste products productively.
