MANCHESTER, U.K.—British Gas is in the midst of building a $7.9 million plant in Manchester that will turn left-over foods from take-aways, curry restaurants, offices and hotel kitchen into biomethane gas to power 1,400 homes annually, according to the U.K.’s  The Mirror.

The food scraps will be heated after being slopped into large containers designed to process food the same way a cow’s stomach would. Natural bacteria will break the food down to create biomethane, similar to the natural gas used in Canada for central heating and cooking.
