Brewery waste to fuel deliveries

A Suffolk brewer's bid to turn the waste it produces into fuel for its delivery vehicles has been approved.

Suffolk County Council has backed proposals by Southwold-based Adnams for an anaerobic digestion plant next to its distribution centre in Reydon.

The plant will allow food waste and leftovers from the brewing process to be broken down by micro-organisms.

It will then be turned into liquid fertiliser and compressed natural gas, which can be converted to biofuel.
