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 neutral* 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 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.
