A team from O.C.O were delighted
to pay a visit to Petronor, its project partner in the circular economy mineralisation
project to develop a facility in Bilbao to capture Carbon dioxide from Petronor
to transform ash otherwise destined for landfill into manufactured aggregate.
The O.C.O team included its CEO,
Steve Greig and Clayton Sullivan-Webb, Managing Director of Grundon Waste
Management Limited (O.C.O’s parent company).
The O.C.O team spent time with
Petronor’s circular economy team as well as visiting the site for the proposed
facility and Petronor’s refinery.
Steve Greig, CEO of O.C.O said “We
are delighted to be partnering with Petronor and to be part of their energy
transformation journey. It is also an important project for O.C.O as it will be
our first plant in main land Europe and a further demonstration of the
viability of our technology to permanently capture carbon and divert material
from landfill, whilst providing a beneficial product to the construction
The project is supported by the
European Commissions’ Innovation Fund which awards funding to the most
innovative projects for the development of low carbon technologies that are
close to pre-commercial scale.
