The article discusses the planned anaerobic digestion facility at Llwyn Isaf, Wales. The plant will divert from the landfill and treat household, commercial and industrial food waste for Gwynedd Council under a 15-year contract with BiogenGreenfinch. The plant will also produce renewable energy that can generate electricity annually for around 750 homes. It will also produce a nutrient-rich organic fertilizer for use on nearby farmland.
