Dr. Peter Gunning, Technical and Quality Manager for O.C.O, recently presented at a prestigious international webinar on ‘Valorisation of fly ash from Waste to Energy’. Peter is a recognised authority on the topic and used the webinar to showcase the O.C.O expertise in creating carbon negative aggregate materials from residual materials.

The webinar was organised by IEA Bioenergy, a Technology Collaboration Programme functioning within a framework created by the International Energy Agency (IEA). The programme featured presentations from around the world and it was notable that O.C.O was unique in having developed from academic research into a commercial business.

Peter believes “it was a valuable opportunity to learn more about developing technologies.  The webinar underlined how well positioned O.C.O is in terms of advancing our technology to a commercial scale and exploiting the potential globally.  It was evident the concept of the circular economy and preservation of natural resources is driving interest in valorisation of waste materials, notably the residues from thermal processes.  The O.C.O technology has the proven ability to treat a very wide range of materials with the important additional advantage of permanent carbon capture.”
