- Naturally occurring micro-organisms digest the biomass, which releases a methane-rich gas (biogas) that can be used to generate renewable heat and power; this helps cut fossil fuel use and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
- The remaining material (digestate) is rich in nutrients, so it can be used as a fertiliser.
