Fabra members play a central role in UK Government efforts to increase production of energy from sustainable or renewable sources, and reduce the amount of biodegradable material being sent to landfill.
Biomass-to-energy sites use food residues as biofuel, in place of traditional fossil fuels such as coal. The process is carbon-neutral; carbon released during the production of the electricity is equivalent to that absorbed by plants during their growth.
As well as producing energy from biomass, Fabra members supply liquid and solid biofuels to industry to replace fossil fuels such as oil and coal for steam and power generation and for use in biodiesel production.
Every Fabra member produces low-carbon renewable energy to power its production and recycling processes, and in some cases export power to the national grid.
