Food waste-derived biogas powers Kroger's distribution center (USA)


Grocery chain Kroger has brought a new anaerobic digester on line that is generating biogas from food waste to help power its distribution center in Compton, California. The Kroger Recovery System will annually divert 55,000 tons of food that cannot be sold or donated into renewable energy for Food 4 Less’s 650,000-square-foot distribution center. . The digester will produce enough biogas to offset more than 20 percent of the energy demand of the distribution center. Along with providing power to the distribution center, the biogas will power more than 150 zero-emission fork lifts.
