TSF Engineering Aus's insight:

This is the way forward, and we can do it here in Australia. A tonne of food waste can produce about 300 kilowatt hours of energy. TSF have advised industrial businesses, such as abattoirs, which can put their 'blood and guts' waste into an anaerobic digester, capture gas and either use that gas to replace the gas they are buying, or put that gas into a co-gen plant to create electricity.
