TEG Biogas (London) Limited is building and will operate a £21 million organic waste facility at the London Sustainable Industries Park.  The plant will have the capability to process 49,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) of food and green waste via a 30,000 tpa Anaerobic Digestion (AD) plant and a 19,000 tpa In-vessel composting (IVC) plant. LWARB invested £4.4 million of senior debt into the facility on pari passu terms with Investec Bank plc. (providing £3.5 million).  The remaining £13 million has been provided by equity investors.

Construction started in September 2012 and was completed in October 2013.  Commissioning is now taking place.
