Environment Agency to tackle carbon emissions with B25 biodiesel26 January 2011
Waste-to-energy firm Convert2Green it is to supply the Environment Agency's transport fleet with EN-standard biofuels as part of the agency's goal to reduce its CO2 emissions by 33% before 2015.
Convert2Green will supply eight of the Environment Agency's depots in England and Wales with B25 biodiesel, which is recycled from 100% waste vegetable oil, taken from sustainable sources.
"The waste cooking oil is sourced in the UK, recycled and blended to create the biodiesel, so it has a low carbon footprint and the whole waste-to-energy process is undertaken in a plant that is powered by its own bio-fuel generators," says Andy Webb, director, Convert2Green.
"For Convert2Green to be working with the Environment Agency to help it achieve its goals is a fabulous endorsement of what we try to achieve daily," he continues.
"The agency's strongly held commitment to minimising CO2 emissions and reducing its impact on the environment has driven it to find a sustainable source of fuel for its road fleet, and we're delighted to be working together on this initiative."
