The UK’s largest oil and food waste converter has taken over a bio-fuel producer.
Olleco, the UK’s largest converter of used cooking oil and food waste into renewable energy, has acquired Convert2Green, a Cheshire producer of bio-fuels used in the power, heat and transport sectors.
The combining of the two companies increases the number of Olleco’s depots across the UK to 17. It also has three bio-refineries and a facility in Liverpool which produces biodiesel from used cooking oil. Olleco sends none of the organic waste it collects to landfill.
It employs more than 550 people in the UK and serves 50,000 catering establishments.
Commercial director Adam Baisley said he was “delighted to welcome Convert2Green customers and staff to Olleco”.
