Energy From Waste

BeBlock will convert agricultural, commercial and industrial waste into low-carbon and sustainable energy at the point of use.

BeBlock will reduce the amount of food waste being transported to landfills or other centralised premises. This, in turn, will reduce greenhouse gas emissions into our atmosphere.

Environmental Benefits

BeBlock will help you to reduce the amount of waste generated on your sites along with their associated greenhouse gas emissions.

Food Waste

By 2030, the amount of food lost or wasted annually is estimated to reach 2.1 billion tonnes, equivalent to 66 tonnes per second according to a report by Boston Consulting Group (BCG). The BCG report also warns that food waste is continuing to escalate and that the global response to the problem is ‘fragmented and inadequate’. We have little chance of meeting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and target to halve food waste by 2030 unless we all take mandatory steps towards preventing excess food from going to waste.

Food waste accounts for 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions according to the UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO).

Excluding fish and seafood, the direct economic consequences of food waste equate to £578 bn annually.

Experts estimate food waste releases 3.3 billion tonnes of CO2 equivalent of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions into the atmosphere per year.

Methane emissions from landfills represent one of the largest sources of GHG emissions from the waste sector.

The majority of food waste in the UK comes from households as opposed to restaurants, hotels and businesses, including supermarkets.

1.4 billion hectares of land, 28% of the world's agricultural area, is used every year to produce food that is lost or wasted.

920,000 tonnes of food worth £2.5bn is thrown away every year in the UK hospitality sector.

In the UK hospitality and catering sector, the amount of food wasted each year is estimated to be £3.5bn, equivalent to 1.3bn meals (one in five meals).

Estimates are around 10 million tonnes of food waste is generated every year in the UK, post-farm gate, 70% of which was intended to be consumed by people.

Food waste contributes more to climate change than packaging waste.

If we all stopped wasting good food, it would equate to taking 1 in 4 cars off UK roads.

We live in cities where both needless food waste and food poverty co-exist.
