The EU’s Renewable Energy Directive establishes an overall policy for the production and promotion of energy from renewable sources, requiring the EU to fulfil at least 20% of its total energy needs from renewables by 2020.

The generation of electricity usually involves a large-scale intrusion on the landscape that is neither sustainable nor environmentally friendly.  Our ethos at FutureFuel is for the promotion of small-scale, unobtrusive generating facilities that have a minimal environmental impact.  

Our processing plants turn waste vegetable oils, including used cooking oil (‘UCO’) into biodiesel and glycerol.  Both of these products can be used to generate energy.

Our biodiesel is used to power our eight on-site generators which export a combined 2.5MW of renewable electricity to the National Grid 24/7/365.
