69% of people do not know that food waste causes climate change.
Food waste is estimated to be responsible for 11% of greenhouse gas emissions. Tackling this will have a massive impact on climate change.
- Premium biodiesel made from used cooking oil reduces traffic carbon emissions by up to 86%
- Diverting food waste from landfill reduces methane emissions which are more than 25 times more damaging than CO₂
- Generating renewable energy & fertiliser from unavoidable food waste reduces CO₂ emissions from fossil fuel
If everyone in the UK followed Olleco's lead, we could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 16.4million tonnes CO₂e. That’s equivalent to powering every home in Britain’s 10 biggest cities or creating a forest the size of Scotland.
