Food Waste

 

Waste cooking oil

All of the waste cooking oil from our kitchens is collected by olleco.co.uk and turned into Biodiesel. In turn, the biodiesel is supplied to large fuel companies so they can meet the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO). This UK requirement means that transport fuel suppliers must ensure a small percentage of all road vehicle fuel is supplied from sustainable or renewable sources. The SU is therefore aiding the government’s initiative to help ensure millions of road users get access to more sustainable road fuels.

 

Food Waste

Is also being collected by Olleco, who convert it into biogas via anaerobic digestion (olleco.co.uk/green-fuels/biogas). We're averaging at 5 wheelie bins of waste a week, and this provides sufficient energy to power a 3kw oven for over 30 hours.
