Case Studies

Case_Study_Cooking_Up

Cooking up new ideas with kitchen waste

In 2017 we got the chance to explore an exciting recycling opportunity at VOX cinemas that sees waste cooking oil being used to power vehicles. These large entertainment venues include commercial kitchens and restaurants, which use a high volume of cooking oil on a daily basis. This creates a real waste disposal issue because cooking oil can’t be reused indefinitely and it’s difficult to dispose of responsibly when it’s no longer fit for purpose.

Harnessing renewable energy

We reached a significant landmark in 2016 with the launch of our Renewable Energy White Paper, which sets out plans for an investment in renewable energy of AED 152 million that will reduce our annual carbon footprint by 27,000 absolute tonnes of carbon and will deliver a return on investment in as little as nine years.
