Anaerobic digestion is a common alternative for turning food waste into biogas that can be used for energy supply. In this paper, a model that explores the use of biogas to generate electricity in a fulfilment center is conducted. Simulation results from 5 different case studies show that the fulfilment center can achieve from 9.88% to almost 16.10% in electricity cost savings by using only the food waste potential to supply a portion of its energy demand. The use of food waste for renewable energy generation in fulfilment centers has the potential to reduce electricity costs rather than disposing of them in landfills.
