IN URBAN FOOD WASTE MANGEMENT

LEAP is a cross-sector partnership developing micro anaerobic digestion (AD) to:

  • Turn food waste into clean renewable energy and fertiliser
  • Reduce carbon and methane emissions, air pollution and waste disposal costs
  • Create green jobs and training opportunities for local people
  • And support local food growing and urban greening projects

Our pilot system is up and running at Camley Street Natural Park near Kings Cross. Contact us to find out more, book a guided tour or enquire about educational workshops. Or simply drop by to have a look, the Park is open 10-4 Mondays to Fridays as well as Sundays. You can also sign up to receive updates and details on when to visit when its up and running.
