LEAP is a cross-sector partnership combining engineering, process modeling, community engagement and environmental education skills to develop micro anaerobic digestion – a small-scale renewable technology, which turns organic waste into clean fuel and liquid fertiliser. LEAP envisions a future where decentralized, closed-loop waste management and intensive urban agriculture is combined to reduce food and waste miles.
With two demonstration sites in Central London, we are currently optimising the technology and hope to support the creation of green jobs. Advocating a local approach to the organic circular economy, we aim to empower communities and bring environmental and economic benefits to both urban and rural areas.
We have developed training workshops and an educational schools programme, and hope to establish an open source platform to accelerate global collaboration and support the uptake of closed-loop solutions.
