UK based organic waste processing firm, Andigestion Ltd, just been awarded BSI PAS 110 status for the digestate produced at its anaerobic digestion plant near.

The company said that its Gloucestershire facility recycles up to 34,000 tonnes of food waste per year from households and businesses across the county. The biomethane gas produced by the plant t is injected directly into the gas network, while the digestate is used as fertiliser by local farmers.

PAS 110 accreditation is an industry specification for digestate produced by anaerobic digestion against which producers can assure their customers of its quality.

Andigestion  said that the awarding of the PAS110 certificate  guarantees that its digestate is safe for human, animal and plant life, as well as being fit for purpose on farmland in place of carbon intensive chemical fertilisers.

It also means that the digestate can be sold to customers under the ‘bio-fertiliser’ symbol.

“Andigestion’s Holsworthy facility in Devon was the first in the country to be accredited with the BSI PAS 110 status,” said Tom Brown, Andigestion’s environmental compliance officer. “We’re overjoyed that our second plant in Bishop’s Cleeve has now followed in its footsteps.”

“By meeting the PAS 110 standard Andigestion’s digestate is regarded as having been fully recovered and effectively ceases being waste,” he continued. “This recognition is a great ‘stamp of approval’ for the digestate that we are producing, reassures our customers that they are getting a top quality products and speaks to Andigestion’s commitment to continued success.”
