Turning Food Waste into Electricity

Turning Food Waste into Electricity

What if instead of throwing out our food scraps, we used them to create heat and electricity?

SEaB Energy, a UK-based startup, has built anaerobic digesters that turn thousands of pounds of food-waste per day into biogas that can be used for heat and electricity. This means producers, grocery stores, and restaurants may someday satisfy part of their energy needs on-site using food that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill.

To build and deliver their shipping-crate embedded digesters, SEaB has partnered with G3 systems, a subsidiary of IAP Worldwide Services that specializes in the design and construction of deployable infrastructure systems.

The company was founded in 2009 by Sandra and Nick Sassow, and over the past 10 years, it has evolved into a 22 member organization with products in 13 countries and over £7 million in funding.

SEaB has won numerous awards in the UK, including the Business Green Technology Award and the David Green Award, by Future South. When asked about her dream for the company, CEO Sandra Sassow noted “we dream of a world where waste is the fuel, there are no more diesel generators and everyone can produce their own power from their own waste”.
