Renewable Energy Generation Ltd. : Turn your Christmas lunch into renewable energy

Turn your used cooking oil into energy by recycling it at one of the county's household waste recycling sites this Christmas.

West Sussex County Council and its recycling contractor Viridor have partnered with Living Fuels to transform the oil into much needed renewable energy.
Nine household waste recycling sites in West Sussex have been kitted out with tanks to collect cooking oil, which is then taken to a recovery facility where it is transformed into a liquid fuel that generates renewable energy for the National Grid.

Bill Griffiths, the Viridor's National Recycling Manager, said: "Help make this year's Christmas a greener one, and bring your cooking oil to one of the household waste recycling sites that are offering the service. "The best thing to do is for people to put the used oil in plastic bottles, so we can recycle the container as well.

"Why not make the most of the journey by bringing along any other recyclable items left over from the festive season."

Lionel Barnard, West Sussex County Council's deputy leader who has responsibility for waste and recycling, said that the county's recycling rates could be boosted if more people recycled their cooking oil.

He said: "In the UK, we are at the forefront of new technology with respect to recycling, which is illustrated with our excellent overall recycling rate of 44% in West Sussex.

"However, we're always looking for new things for people to recycle to help push this figure even higher, so are really pleased to be launching the service."

Rob Murphy, Operations Director at Living Fuels who operate the plants that process the oil explains: "Turning cooking oil into a chemical-free bioliquid results in higher levels of energy recovery than manufacturing carbon-hungry biodiesel, making our process the most sustainable use of waste vegetable oil. He went on to say that, "as well as providing a valuable source of renewable energy, recycling cooking oil can also help prevent it ending up in the sewerage network."

Cooking oil recycling is available at the following Household Waste Recycling Sites: Billingshurst; Burgess Hill; Chichester (Westhampnett); Crawley; East Grinstead; Horsham; Littlehampton; Shoreham; Worthing
