Watergate Bay is leading the way in reducing landfill emissions by producing energy from our food waste . We are one of the first to install a bio digester that transforms all our food waste into hot water which then supplies Fifteen Cornwall, The Beach Hut and The Extreme Academy with their daily needs.
This fantastic machine was created by Bio Nova who we have been working closely with over the last few months.
We feed our machine with the food waste from all 4 of our restaurants and within 72 hours it is turned into a fuel that burns in our biomass boiler and produces the hot water. We are thrilled with the machine and the fact that we are now diverting over 80 tonnes of food waste a year away from landfill, and saving on gas use in three businesses.
