A new domestic waste disposal appliance that turns waste into energy to heat homes has been found to be less impactful in terms of CO2 emissions than more traditional waste collection methods, according to a new report by Ricardo Energy and Environment.

The independent report carried out by the environmental consultancy has found that HERU (Home Energy Resource Unit), which uses low temperature pyrolysis to transform everyday waste (such as nappies, plastics and food) into energy, has the potential to save each household up to 1,200kg of CO2 per year.
