Sustainable Benefits of the EMCET Process

Generating Renewable Energy & Enhancing Energy Security

In addition to the carbon savings related to the core EMCET process, the output oil can be used in situ as a renewable fuel for heat and power generation. This can further reduce a site’s carbon emissions and enhance energy security.

Reducing Carbon Emissions

The patented EMCET process is a low-temperature mechanical separation solution that operates in a compact footprint. As a result, its energy consumption is significantly lower than conventional processes. Furthermore, by processing waste material on-site, the carbon miles associated with transport can be reduced.

Moving Material up the Waste Hierarchy

The EMCET process delivers higher-quality outputs of oil and protein. These outputs can then be used in applications further up the waste hierarchy such as within the oleochemicals and animal feed industries.

Improving Material Traceability & Food Security

Processing material on-site improves traceability. Reducing movement of animal by-products minimises the chance of disease or contamination and hence improves food security.

Our Partners

The Carbon Trust

Envacet has been working with the Carbon Trust since 2020 to demonstrate the environmental benefits of our patented processes. In September 2021, the Carbon Trust published a case study on the impact of a particular Envacet project on the processing of fallen stock. The key findings were that our process delivered:

  • A 75% reduction in electricity consumption vs. a typical plant.
  • A 40% reduction in thermal energy consumption.
  • The prospect of further reductions in on-site carbon emissions when linked to a combined heat and power (CHP) unit that uses the oil recovered in the EMCET process.
