  • GENeco greets local MP Darren Jones

    After hearing the buzz about our Bio-Bee, MP for Bristol North West, Darren Jones, visited GENeco’s site in Bristol to see first-hand how we transform waste into renewable energy.

    Darren Jones MP visit

    Darren initially became aware of the Bio-Bee via social media, and subsequently arranged to visit the sewage treatment works located in his constituency. During a tour of GENeco’s site he was shown the inputs to and outputs to each process, demonstrating how the company treats waste from Bristol and Bath to convert it into renewable electricity, biomethane and bio-fertilisers.

    He was also interested to learn about GENeco’s work with the local community, such as renewable transport and work experience programmes.

    GENeco’s Bio-Bee is the UK’s first vehicle to both collect and run on commercial food waste offering a cost effective, clean and sustainable method. The Bio-Bee follows in the footsteps of the Bio-Bus, which when trialled back in 2015 ran on human waste and food waste.

    Darren said: “I would like to thank the GENeco team, in Avonmouth, for hosting my visit on Friday 23 March.

    “It’s astounding to think until the 1960s that sewage was dumped at sea!

    “This informative visit closely illustrated to me the amazing advances in sustainability and the circular economy.”
