Water Quality.jpg

Improved Water quality

In the UK, oil is one of the most frequently reported types of water pollution and can cause significant damage to wildlife in waterways.

By diverting UCO and other waste oils away from British waterways, sewers and seas, we can help protect the environment and let local natural ecosystems flourish.

Reducing Landfill Use

Disposal of waste vegetable oil into landfill sees
it decompose anaerobically to release methane. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency estimates, methane traps up to 100 times more heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide within a 5-year period and 72 times within a 20-year period.

Avoiding such disposal in landfills is our part of our contribution to helping fight climate change.

Boosting Diversity in the UK’s Energy Mix

Britain’s energy security has been a topical issue in recent months, given strained UK-Russian relations and the uncertainty around the UK’s relationship with the EU Energy Market post-Brexit. Our waste-to-energy technology to produce biofuel plays a strategic role in ensuring the UK maintains a diverse, secure energy mix.

Protecting drainage infrastructure

The build-up of oil disposed into drainage systems is responsible for significant remedial costs being incurred by water companies and the Government: the estimated national cost of this in the UK runs into tens of millions of pounds every year. Diverting waste oil away from our sewage systems will reduce this remedial cost.

Improved Air Quality

Consumer demand for petrol cars has seen a significant decline in the UK’s air quality. This was identified by the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs in a 2017 report, which described the state of Britain’s air quality as a “serious public health issue”. The biodiesel produced by FutureFuel Renewables has undergone an 18-month testing process through our BioCabby scheme with a 10-year-old London Black Taxi.

At the Department for Transport’s testing stations, it demonstrated an almost 90% reduction in emissions compared to petroleum diesel.

Competitive Pricing

Soaring prices of petroleum-based products means that biodiesel is an increasingly affordable alternative. If produced locally, biodiesel can undercut current forecourt pricing for vehicle fuel, benefiting the local economy and reducing dependence on imported fuel.

Job Creation

The collection of waste vegetable oils,
running the FutureFuel Renewables plant and day-to-day management of the business all provide employment
opportunities for the local economy. As a bronze member
of the Armed Forces Covenant, FutureFuel Renewables
actively recruits and retrains former members of the
UK Armed Forces, something which we are very proud of.
