Biogas to be obtained from Unilever's expired food

Unilever, one of the largest players in the local consumer goods market, has signed a partnership with Genesis Biopartner Group, through which it is committed to deliver waste from expired food to be converted into energy, according to Jarek Malinowski, the CEO of Unilever South Central Europe

2014-06-07 22:43:06 - From the Print Edition

The expired food products such as margarine, ice cream, mustard, mayonnaise and ketchup will come from Unilever's warehouse in Aricestii Rahtivani, Prahova county, and will be converted into renewable energy. "Unilever products are converted into biogas and, subsequently, into renewable energy, via cogeneration within the first Romanian facility built by Genesis Biopartner Group in Filipestii de Padure, Prahova county," said Malinowski. "The unit processes 50 tonnes of organic substrate daily and produces renewable energy, both electricity and heat. The electricity is fed into the national grid and the heat (steam and hot water) – to a local consumer." Moreover, according to Malinowski, Unilever's factory production in Ploiesti sends zero waste to landfills from manufacturing processes since 2013, following a project aimed at reduction and recycling of hazardous and non-hazardous waste. Having brands like Dero, Knorr and Lipton in its portfolio, Unilever is present in Romania since 1995 and has invested nearly 125 million Euro since.
