BOCS (Bradford Organics Composting Service)
Aim: To put Bradford's organic resources to work through the creation and operation of a anaerobic digestion and composting facility.

- Food waste recycling collection service
- Commercial food waste recycling advice for businesses
- Green electricty and low level heat production (CHP)
- Produce compost for landscaping and and biological fertilsers for agricultural use
Food waste will be shredded, blended digested to creat bio-gas. The bio-gas will power a turbine to produce susatinable electricity and low-level heat. Solid outputs from the digester will be composted in-vessel. BOCS will be working towards the quality standard of PAS 110 for its compost.
Other benefits of BOCS will be the creation of new jobs and in the future BOCS aims to donate a proportion of its profits to BCEP.
