Powered by biscuits

We’re always looking for new ways to make use of non-recyclable ‘landfill waste’ from our customers. In 2013, we created a fuel product that can be produced from waste – we call this biscuits.


Producing far fewer emissions than coal, oil and gas, this green energy helps to reduce dependency on fossil fuels. We are continually refining the process and overcoming challenges. For example, we have reduced the number of broken biscuits and are currently looking into producing square bales for ease of storage and transport.

In 2013, we exported some 5,126 biscuits from our Southwark and Basildon facilities, with very positive feedback from customers there. In 2014, we will be opening a new biscuit construction site in Durham.
