Organics Pre‑processing & Recycling
Depackaging Food and Beverage Waste
Step 1: Pre‑processing
Vanguard Renewables' advanced Organics Receiving Areas depackage and pre‑process expired goods, off‑spec batches, or unsafe to eat food and beverage products.
Step 2: Recycling
The extracted food waste is recycled at a Farm Powered anaerobic digester, where it is combined with farm waste and converted into renewable energy. Some waste streams skip step 1 and enter the anaerobic digester directly.
Why Vanguard Renewables?
- Increased diversion of food waste from landfills
- Production of renewable energy
- Improved soil health
- Reduced carbon footprint
