Legal permitting for Biofuels Corporation in the UK
Biofuels Corporation’s plant on Teeside in the UK is one of the world’s largest plants producing biofuels. We helped to develop an application to the Environment Agency for a permit to operate under the IPPC regime.

Product Compliance – Energy Using Products Directive
We design an online tool to assist eco-friendly product design and compliance with the Energy Using Products Directive (EuP). Our tool, EcoFly, calculates the energy use, carbon emitted, waste generation and water consumption over the whole life of the product. Applying EcoFly through the design of a product provides the dossier of evidence – and also provides the final evidence of compliance to EuP standards. Find out more at www.ecoflyonline.com
