O.C.O applauded in Sir James Bevan’s recent address
In a recent speech given at the
London Climate Technology Show at Olympia in London, Sir James Bevan, Chief
Executive of the Environment Agency, listed O.C.O Technology as one of the
‘smart’ businesses stepping up to help tackle the current climate emergency.
In the speech, entitled ‘Pay It
Forward: Investing in A Green Future’ he explained how our patented process
turns hazardous waste that would otherwise be sent to landfill is being used to
manufacture a carbon-negative aggregate which is helping innovators in the
construction industry move towards greater sustainability.
Sir James gave the speech after visiting our Avonmouth plant in August to see the process first-hand. The aim of the speech was to highlight the importance of the private sector rising to the challenge of tackling the climate crisis because, not only is it the right thing to do, but it is also ‘crucial for any business that wants to survive and thrive’.
