Founded as a bedroom start-up in 1992, Greenergy has grown rapidly to become one of the UK’s largest road fuel suppliers, supplying about one fifth of the UK’s fuel.[1]

Customers of Greenergy include the major oil companies and supermarkets (diesel and petrol for retail sale and biofuel for onward blending), as well as bus and logistics companies (diesel for fleet use).[1]

Greenergy also remains the principal supplier of biofuel in the UK,[2] in particular the production, blending and sustainable sourcing of biofuel. To contribute to its own requirements and meet customer demands Greenergy owns and operates a 250,000 tonne/300 million litre pa biodiesel plant at Immingham on the east coast of England producing biodiesel from waste products.[3][4]

Greenergy manages complex supply chains to source and supply fuel:

  1. International purchasing: Purchasing gasoline, diesel and biofuel products from across the world, transporting them by ship to oil terminals in the UK and Rotterdam.
  2. Petrol and diesel supply: Supplying fuel to customers who operate petrol stations (oil companies and supermarkets) and also to major users of fuel such as bus and logistics companies.[1] Greenergy supplies from locations across the UK, either “ex-rack” (customer collects from terminal) or “delivered in” (arranged delivery). Every day Greenergy arranges hundreds of fuel deliveries to customers by truck.
  3. Fuel manufacturing: Greenergy blends different fuel and biofuel components to manufacture and supply over 20 million litres of petrol and diesel every day. Blending facilities are located at two terminals in the UK, in the south on the Thames estuary and in the north at Teesside.[4]
  4. Biofuel supply: Greenergy blends biofuel into all petrol and diesel products to meet obligations under the UK’s Renewable Transport Fuels Obligation (RTFO). Biodiesel and bioethanol is also supplied to oil companies for blending into their own fuels. Greenergy also manufactures biodiesel at a plant on the east coast of England, processing mostly wastes and residues.
