About Fairfield: Links to other Organisations
Fairfield Anaerobic Digestion (FAD) has developed a business to divert unwanted commercial and household food waste away from landfill through an Anaerobic Digestion (AD) process. Food waste will be delivered to the site and processed through the AD system. For the system to succeed, we need to work with businesses and Local Authorities with the ability to think laterally - if food waste can be diverted from a business or a household without a garden, then it can be processed to generate renewable electricity.
