Fuel from food waste

It is a sustainable alternative to energy crops or biomass, which displace significant areas of land for food production. In 2013, Veolia produced and dispatched 27,003 litres of soup, exceeding our target.

Getting to this position has involved overcoming a number of challenges, the greatest being the levels of contaminants, which we have overcome through refining our technologies towards our target of 98% purity. We are proud to report that the product now has PAS110 status for its quality control.

When fully operational in 2014, the Tinsley facility will produce 35,000 tonnes of soup a year, an output that has generated a lot of interest among our customers and stakeholders, raising our profile in the food recovery chain.
