Olleco, McDonald’s & Arla
One innovative project has been the development of a transformational ‘closed loop’ circular economy model for Arla Foods, at the company’s Aylesbury site, and with McDonald’s. The pioneering model involves collecting cooking oil and food waste from McDonald’s restaurants, which is then converted into bio-fuel and renewable energy used to power the company’s transport fleet. The digestate by-product from the energy generation process is also applied back to farmland at the start of the supply chain, closing the loop. A truly successful solution that can be applied to wider farmland in the community for sustainable meat production.
