Coca-Cola helps heat Utah homes

As part of its drive for sustainability, Swire Coca- Cola, USA is sending expired and damaged product to Utah's first anaerobic digester, which opened earlier this year in Salt Lake City. The biodigester accepts organic matter such as solid food waste and liquefied organic waste from Utah businesses and breaks it down to produce biogas, which is then converted into pipeline grade natural gas (biomethane) and used to power local households. The residual nutrient-rich solid matter is meanwhile used as a fertilizer by local farmers. For Swire Coca-Cola, the initiative means the company can outsource recycling of its waste at little cost, producing a win-win result for both the business and the environment.
