Domestic Collection

We have developed community and schools programmes which will be rolled out in 2018,
to harness the largely untapped collection of domestic used cooking oil.


As per Ecofys reports, very little UCO is recycled in the UK domestic sector, with over 90% of this waste source finding its way into the water system via drains or sent to landfill. Both cause environmental harm and extensive costs in maintenance and repairs. Thames Water currently spends more than £15m per annum repairing damaged drains as a result of fatty deposits built up from oil disposed of down the drains. We will be actively targeting the general public and young recyclers of the future, encouraging them to recycle their used cooking oil more responsibly through awareness campaigns, educational visits, social media and events.

We aim to make recycling as easy as possible, with branded FutureFuel bottle banks strategically
sited at Kent schools and with partners that support our programme to promote recycling.

Kent University

 

We have entered into a long-term collaboration project with the University of Kent. Working in partnership with the Biosciences Department, FutureFuel Technology will be inviting undergraduates and postgraduates to gain
experience at our facility, and challenge them to enhance our scientific capabilities.

We will shortly begin a joint biofuel project, in which we will share our detailed analysis of production and quality control testing methods. We will be hosting on-site events and student coursework visits. In addition to these academic projects, we are committed to giving back to our local community: we will be supporting staff and students with educational talks and presentations on renewable energy, and will provide FutureFuel recycling units on campus and halls of residence sites.

Armed Forces Covenant

We are a bronze member of the Armed Forces Covenant, which is a pledge that together we acknowledge and understand that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society they serve with their lives.  As such, we actively recruit and retrain former members of the UK Armed Forces.


BioCabby

The BioCabby project, led by FutureFuel's Director of Environment & Sustainability Mike O'lone, began in 2016 and campaigns to promote clean air and reduce pollution in London.
As a licensed London black taxi driver, Mike understands the negative impact that vehicles, including taxis, have on London's air quality and the need to promote positive change.

Government figures estimate that 9,400 early deaths in 2016 in London were attributable to air pollution and poor air quality.  We believe action is required, and we want to lead the change.

Since mid-2017 we have been filling the FutureFuel black taxi with a 50:50 blend of forecourt diesel and our BS EN 14214 bio-diesel. To track the impact this had on the vehicle’s emissions we carried out emissions tests at Department of Transport accredited MOT stations.  We think you’ll agree that our current reading of 0.24 is a significant improvement on the previous reading of 0.88 which we received prior to using the 50:50 blend.

[What does this number mean?  Can we put it into some sort of context?]

Mike represents FutureFuel as a member of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Air Quality and Pollution, The Environmental Industries Commission and has become a respected public speaker on environmental and air quality matters. As well as popping up on The Robert Elms and Eddie Nestor (OBE) BBC shows, he is often found speaking at industry seminars such as the Recovery Tow Show and public speaking engagements internationally. 

Be sure to give the BioCabby a wave if you see him around London in his FutureFuel black taxi!

FutureFuel are a waste to energy creating high quality BS EN 14214 Bio-diesel from waste vegetable oils. 

In 2017 we were identified by the Department of International Trade as a company of interest that they would like to introduce into developing markets. We travelled to Cuba later that year and several times during 2018. The Cuban government were very receptive not only to our recycling solutions, but the Public and Environmental Health Project we offered.
This innovative project represents great progress for them as a nation as there is currently no recycling of these materials and they are land-filled or find their way into the ocean. 

The 2nd part of our project will be to develop collection hubs in country to support the harvesting of waste streams. 

The 3rd part of our project will involve bringing re-cycling technology hardware directly to Cuba. The FutureFuel Export Model offers the end user the opportunity to use a fully commissioned bio-refinery that will enable them to become a waste to energy producer anywhere in the world which they can operate completely off-grid. Its modular design maximises processing capability and returns. This technology provides re-cycling solution for materials that would otherwise cause environmental harm.   

Socio-Economic Value

The environmental nature of the Public Health part of this project will deliver recognisable social impacts. Better health is an almost immediate outcome from better public health education and awareness. 

The mechanisms we are developing to provide this very much incorporate social inclusion, public and governmental empowerment to so that all parties have a clear vision of the goals, objectives, pathways and the action and outputs required. 

we are in contact with Universities in order to find the best way to export our advanced technologies and make them available in Cuba and Indonesia (Mike details: University Name etc).

The project will help to decrease emissions in these countries were the oil would be otherwise landfilled or pour in the ocean.It will support the strengthening of local policies and institutions, closure and rehabilitation of old and informal dumpsites, and installation of sustainable disposal sites including modern sanitary landfills. 

Our goal is a triple bottom line. We want to make profit and grow, to share our wealth and reinvest it. We believe in people and in their power; people with a shared vision and values. And we understand that whether you are a business or an individual, we all have this planet in common and it is in all our interests to preserve and revitalise it.
