Food waste management for military bases and FOBs
An army marches on its stomach, so it is said! Our modern armed forces employ almost 150,000 full-time service people across the tri-services sector, and it is a huge logistical task to supply produce and cook and feed them every day.
Waste is unavoidable at sites supporting daily military operations. In fact, the tri-services sector produces around 68,000 tonnes of unavoidable food waste each year.
Is there a way for them to turn the inevitable food waste into power? Yes, there is.
Operational commitments and a readiness to respond to any event mean that sometimes a well-prepared meal ends up wasted.
These establishments and bases are also highly energy-intensive, which presents a real opportunity to convert this unavoidable food waste into usable energy. That will not only bring down operational costs but also significantly reduce the carbon footprint of the facility by producing renewable energy.
Food for thought: 68,000 tonnes could equate to £8million of usable energy!
Our systems also offer the same cost-saving potential for other aid agencies and government divisions. They are portable and re-deployable to support campaign commitments.
Sustainability is at the heart of what we do. Why pay someone for your food waste management when it can benefit your facility ethically?
