Case Study: GENeco

In this video we talk to GENeco, which process biological and other waste with anaerobic digestion into fuel and fertiliser.

GENeco tackles two local problems at once. The first is the need for reliable energy supplies, the second is waste generated in Bristol.

Food waste, sewage from Bristol and other biological waste is processed at their plant with anaerobic digestion being used to transform the waste into biogas fuel. This energy supply is then added to the national gas distribution network. Much of the remaining solids can be used as agricultural fertilizer.

The company, part of Wessex Water Group, has grown out of Wessex Water’s desire to become far more sustainable. We speak to Mohammed Saddiq, GENeco managing director, who as an ‘intrapreneur’ strongly motivated by sustainability, helped champion and shape a vision within Wessex Water, and subsequently worked with a talented team to make it a reality.
