UK water company Seven Trent is acquiring food waste recycling specialist Agrivert for £120 million.

Agrivert has five well-established food waste anaerobic digestion plants. Its UK operations will now be added to Severn Trent’s existing Green Power Business.

The plants will complement Green Power’s two operating food waste AD plants at East Birmingham and West Birmingham and one under construction in Derby.

The acquisition will add 106 GWh per annum of energy generation to the 354 GWh currently produced by Severn Trent’s broader energy and renewables portfolio.
