Gas produced from a Suffolk brewery’s waste is being pumped into the national grid to heat about 235 homes.

The scheme at Adnams brewery in Southwold harnesses methane from malted barley to produce the biogas through a process known as anaerobic digestion.

The plant will also use local food waste, including leftovers from seven nearby supermarkets.

Adnams said waste from brewing 600 pints of beer could generate enough gas for one home a day.
