Food company claims first for biogas vehicle

North-east-based food waste recycling company Warrens Group is to take delivery of the first of a fleet of trucks powered by biomethane gas.

The company said this would make it the country’s first food waste recycler to power its refuse collection vehicles with biogas converted directly from its food waste customers.

Director Antony Warren said: “We’ve always been early adopters of the latest technology and methods.

”Our fundamental purpose is to collect waste and convert it into energy, so we have been looking for a biogas-powered vehicle for a while – it was just a question of finding the right one.”

The company collaborated with Iveco, which designs and manufactures natural power vehicles, and offered the Eurocargo Natural Power truck.

  • Hello! Congratulations on launching a great service. At GENeco we have been running a similar operation for a year now, in the city of Bristol.

    The Bio-Bee runs off the food waste it collects from commercial customers and was the first of its kind in the UK.

    We would be happy to share our story with you!

  • Thank you Geneco! This is the first HGV of its kind which is really exciting!
    Love what you guys are doings. So great we’re both putting anaerobic digestion on the map and paving the way for new ways to be environmentally friendly.
    Please do feel free to fill up on biogas at our on-site filling station in the future!
