The successful commercial operation of O.C.O Technology is the result of many years of award-winning research.
The business has developed a Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) process to treat and stabilise thermal residues, and in turn valorise them into sustainable construction products such as carbon negative aggregate.
O.C.O Technology is currently one of only a few companies in the UK to hold Environment Agency ‘End of Waste’ approval, classifying the finished aggregate as a ‘product’.
With the unique use of carbon dioxide within its treatment process, O.C.O Technology is ranked within the top 10 companies in the world for permanent carbon capture in a commercialised process. It is also believed to be the only company in the World that produces an aggregate that is truly carbon negative.
O.C.O Technology is a genuine ‘World’s First’, on many fronts and has attracted interest from both the UK Government and the international community.
Grundon Waste Management has been both a major supporter and investor in O.C.O Technology. Founded in 1929 by Stephen Grundon, this family-owned company is the largest privately-owned waste management group in the UK.
The company is well-respected nationally for its professionalism and is acknowledged to be in the vanguard of waste management practice and innovation. For more information about Grundon, please visit their website.
