Environment Agency tackles CO2 emissions with biofuel
Convert2Green will supply eight of the Environment Agency's operational depots in England and Wales with B25 bio-diesel, which is recycled from 100% wastevegetable oil taken from fully sustainable sources in the UK.
'The waste cooking oil is sourced in the UK, recycled and blended to create the bio-diesel so it has a low carbon footprint and the whole waste to energyprocess is undertaken in a plant that is powered by its own bio-fuel generators,' said Andy Webb, director, Convert2Green.
The move forms part of the Environment Agency's goal to reduce its CO2 emissions by 33% by 2015.
Mr Webb continued: '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. The Environment 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.'
