BIFFA AND LUNAZ: PARTNERS IN UP-CYCLING
Lunaz is delighted to announce a landmark fleet electrification partnership with Biffa, the UK’s leading sustainable waste management company.
The partnership means that existing diesel refuse trucks will be upcycled instead of scrapped as Biffa transitions its fleet to zero-emissions powertrains, and each ‘Upcycled Electric Vehicle’ will emit zero tailpipe emissions and save 21 tonnes of embedded carbon versus replacing with a new vehicle. Lunaz’ ‘1 for 1’ policy ensures the decommissioning of every fossil fuel engine before recycling its components, effectively removing a polluting vehicle from the global car park with every vehicle it electrifies. For UK councils, the procurement of these vehicles represents a significant saving for the taxpayer, with more than £1 million in public money saved for every 20 vehicles upcycled and electrified versus buying new EV equivalents.
This agreement represents a key milestone for Biffa, signalling clear progress towards its 2030 sustainability commitments in line with the UN’s sustainable development goals. Biffa has committed to reducing emissions by 50% by 2030, building on a 70% reduction since 2002, and to cease buying fossil-fuelled trucks as soon as practicable.
Lunaz, which has a capacity to upcycle over 1,110 industrial vehicles every year, has committed to expanding its UK upcycling and electrification footprint to meet surging demand for electrified vehicles in the run-up to the 2030 ban on the sale of fossil fuelled vehicles. The British economy further benefits as Biffa and Lunaz are pioneering growth in circular practices at a critical time, supporting more than 300 jobs and a new, green capability.
