ABP Food Group has announced it will invest in a £22 million waste-to-energy plant in the UK through its renewable energy division located in Olleco, Ireland.
The plant will produce enough sustainable energy to power the equivalent of 12,000 homes.
"This state of the art Olleco facility will convert in excess of 100,000 tonnes of waste into heat, power and bio-methane for export to the national grid, and bio-fertiliser for both of ABP Food Group's and Arla's farmer suppliers," said Robert Behan, managing director of Olleco.
Olleco, which employs over 600 people across the UK, collects waste food and cooking oil from the retail and food service sector and then converts this waste into bio diesel, bio gas and bio fertiliser.
