Sainsbury's Announces Planned Store Powered By Recycled Food Waste

July 21, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Sainsbury’s plans to open a retail store in the West Midlands that will be powered solely by electricity generated from anaerobic digestion of food waste. Featuring a food waste recycling technology developed in partnership with waste recycling company Biffa, the Sainsbury’s store will be the first retail outlet to go off the power grid in the UK. Sainsbury’s, the UK’s largest user of anaerobic digestion in the retail sector, generates power enough to light up 2,500 homes each year.
