Bulk storage company Stolthaven Terminals is teaming up with cooking oil supply and collection company Olleco to build a used cooking oil (UCO) processing plant at its Dagenham facility in the UK.

Stolthaven Dagenham has allocated land to Olleco to build the facility, which would process UCO collected from restaurants and food production sites, Stolthaven said on 3 February.

The processed oil would then be transferred to Stolthaven Dagenham’s storage tanks before being converted into renewable, low-carbon biodiesel fuel.

Being close to central London, Stolthaven Dagenham was well-connected by road to the greater London area and southeast England, making it a strategic new location for Olleco, which had several UCO processing sites in other parts of the UK, Stolhaven said.

“Our new partnership with Olleco highlights the significance of waste oil in the production of biofuels and the role we play in the supply chain and the transition to sustainable products and alternative fuels,” Pim van den Doel, Stolthaven Terminals’ commercial and business development manager (EMEA), said.
