Oil 4 Wales win this year’s UKIFDA Green Award – sponsored by Oilshield
Last week members of the Oilshield team travelled to South Wales to present the UKIFDA Green Award sponsored by Oilshield to this year’s winners, Oil 4 Wales.
The Green Award raises awareness of environmental initiatives within the liquid fuel distribution industry – recognising and rewarding those who are leading the way in sustainability and environmental performance for a decarbonised future.
Oil 4 Wales, who will soon be rebranded to Green 4 Wales, are aiming to produce hydrogen through a network of community-based facilities, using a range of feedstocks such as wind or solar power, human or animal waste, depending on local availability.
Where a solar or wind farm is selected as the process feedstock, hydrogen will be produced through electrolysis of water, with the sole by-product being oxygen. Where human or animal waste is selected, a unit will be located next to a water treatment works or agricultural enterprise, using an anaerobic digestor to extract hydrogen – a pilot project with Welsh Water has shown great results.
For the past two years, Oil 4 Wales have also been producing their own AdBlue. Oil 4 Wales distribute the AdBlue through their own transport framework by investing in specialised tankers to deliver bulk deliveries and other vehicles to deliver IBC’s, Barrels, 20 litre cans and 10 litre cans.
We congratulate the Oil 4 Wales team for winning this year’s Green Award sponsored by Oilshield. It was a pleasure to meet with Colin Owens and his team at their premises to present the award in person.
