Stolthaven Dagenham has allocated land in East London at the Stolthaven Terminals facility, to Ocello to build a used cooking oil (UCO) processing facility, which will process UCO collected from restaurants and food production sites.

The UCO will then be transferred to Stolthaven Dagenham’s storage tanks before being converted into renewable, low-carbon biodiesel.

The long-term partnership with Olleco aligns with both companies’ focus on developing sustainable energy alternatives.

It also supports Stolthaven Terminals’ sustainability strategy and its commitment to providing bespoke solutions for customers.

Steve Walker, general manager at the Stolthaven Dagenham terminal, says: ‘In recent years, we have invested significantly in the terminal – including a new jetty due for completion this year – to ensure we continue to meet the specific needs of our customers and we are looking forward to partnering with Olleco on this project.’

Pim van den Doel, Stolthaven Terminals’ commercial and business development manager (EMEA), says: ‘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. Together with our sister companies, Stolt Tankers and Stolt Tank Containers, we provide safe, integrated storage and handling solutions to the biofuel industry worldwide and our Dagenham terminal stores UCO for several customers.’
