waste to energy
Waste to Energy

Convert2Green is:

  • a business which specialises in the food sector
  • based in Middlewich, Cheshire
  • produces road transport bio-diesel from used cooking oil (UCO)
  • produces power/heat and cooling from generators/CHP systems running on bio-fuels created from waste
  • produces power/heat from anaerobic digestion of food waste
  • also collects and recycles other waste streams to energy from the food industry
waste to energy3
Waste to Energy
  • Convert2Green is at the forefront of fast-changing ‘green’ technologies such as bio-fuels, electrical generators, combined heat and power (CHP) systems, biomass systems, wind, solar and geothermal
  • One such technology is the virtuous circle power generation system, which utilises waste cooking oil to provide low carbon transport fuel, electricity and heat to buildings.
road transport
Road Transport
  • National Waste Oil Collection Service
    • Caterers, Food Factories, Local Councils (including schools)
    • Starting a pilot of doorstep collections
  • Supply bio-diesel mainly to LGV’s captive fleets, high blends e.g. from B10 to B100
  • Save up to 85% on carbon emissions because of the methods utilised
  • All collection and delivery vehicles run on bio-diesel
  • The C2G factory runs on a bio-diesel CHP system
  • There is no waste from the factory as all bi-products are further processed or used in digestion.
road transport5
Road Transport
  • Case study 3663:
    • Supplied B30 mix for 4 years, 3 million litres per annum to 1,100 vehicles
    • Carbon saving
    • Worked with vehicle manufacturer Scania to keep normal service schedule at B30 mix.
    • Virtuous circle feedstock
heat power systems
Heat &Power Systems
  • Developed Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system, runs on liquid bio-fuel
  • Gives a 70 – 90% saving on carbon against “grid” power
  • System has been installed in hospitals, leisure centres and food factories
  • Carbon Trust Loans available
  • Can also operate “cool / freeze” from the system for multi-temperature storage
  • The number of enquiries asking for bio-fuels for heating systems to reduce carbon footprint are increasing
  • Cornwall Food Production Unit (CFPU) – Case study
key points
Key Points:
  • Convert2Green:
  • only works with used cooking oil and waste products
  • does not import or export
  • maximises the environmental benefit
  • research and development (R&D) arm is looking for the best carbon saving fuels
  • is a member of UKSBA, liaising closely with the Department of Transport, DECC and RFA, trying to support the UK’s Renewable Fuels Industry
  • Virtuous Circle: All UK waste oils / fats should produce UK energy
