Every Czech produces an average of half a ton of waste every year. In producing waste, Czechs belong to the European average, six out of 10 Czech residents also sort all their waste at home.
We are not indifferent to what happens to used oils. That's why we tendered SEBAK spol., s.r.o., which takes care of the collection of used oils from our kitchens, collected in grease pits, so-called lapols. SEBAK spol. s.r.o. then pumps out these fats and takes them to EFG Vyškov BPS, which uses them in an environmentally friendly way and further processes them in its biogas plants into biogas and organic-mineral fertiliser. The method of waste processing at EFG Vyškov BPS is the most technologically advanced and environmentally friendly method available in the Czech Republic. The plant operates in a continuous mesophilic mode (around 40 °C) and is authorised to process 11 000 tonnes of bio-waste per year, which corresponds to the production of approximately 1 700 000 Nm³ of biogas and 8 000 tonnes of organic-mineral fertiliser. As these products are used without residue, this is a plant with maximum use of the waste processed. In addition to the material recovery of the fertiliser, anaerobic digestion technology contributes to environmental protection in particular by avoiding the release of methane, CO₂ and ammonia fumes, which contribute to climate change, when disposing of bio-waste, unlike composting and landfilling.
