Olleco (an AD operator and food waste collector) nominated their colleague Kevin Kirubakaran as nominee for the AD Rising Star award. Read Kevin’s profile here, and read about Olleco’s prolific work in used cooking oil, a biodiesel and of course — anaerobic digestion.


How is Olleco influential to AD and biogas and like-minded sectors?

Employing over 1000 people, at 19 sites strategically located throughout the UK and Ireland, we service over 50,000 catering establishments. We convert the used oil we collect into renewable fuels while the food waste is transformed into biomethane, electricity, heat and organic fertiliser. In addition to a comprehensive network of local depots, we operate three used cooking oil bio-refineries, a biodiesel plant, a bulk liquid storage facility and three anaerobic digestion (AD) plants with support from a wider network of licensed AD facilities.

We provide the food and hospitality sectors with a range of services designed to help them to tackle the climate emergency by converting their waste resources into renewable energy. Olleco is the renewables arm of ABP Food Group and has grown to become the UK’s leading supplier of premium cooking oils and fats as well as its largest collector of used cooking oil and food waste.


How can society recognise the importance of collecting and recycling food waste?

Our main market insight is that there isn’t enough food waste to fill plants – legislation is critical.
