At FutureFuel we produce biodiesel to the British and European standard BS EN 14214, which is recognised internationally as a mark of quality.
We are also independently accredited and certified under the International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC). We meet their stringent criteria for the production of biomass. We are audited to prove fully traceable, sustainability and climate-friendly credentials for the waste matter we source. This is globally recognised as the benchmark for trustworthiness and ethics in the environmental sector. As a business our environmental, social and sustainability goals are as important to us as our financial aims.
UCO along with waste residues from vegetable oil processing plants pollute the environment. As such, their lawful and ethical disposal poses a significant problem for nations across the globe. In many places large-scale disposal involves pouring it into waterways or dumping into landfill sites. At a micro level, it generally finds its way into the sewerage system via the kitchen sink.
The recycling of UCO and other waste vegetable oils into biodiesel at our FutureFuel Renewables plant provides an exciting and innovative solution to utilising otherwise harmful environmental waste and converting it into a valuable resource: energy.
And it comes with numerous socio-economic benefits:
Improved water quality
Protecting drainage infrastructure
Reducing reliance on landfill
Improved air quality
Boosting diversity in the UK’s energy mix
500MT UCO processed per month
60MWh of renewable green
