The article does say it will be removed into tankers and then "It will then be processed at a plant which turns waste into electricity."

Better send it to Argent Energy in Ellesmere port to be converted into green diesel fuel.
Not burned in a low thermal efficiency incinerator with some low pressure steam cycle!!

Philip R,

Ah but how many road miles will it take to move it?

And will it be vegan? (see the latest headlines about vegans being upset about animal waste being turned into gas and then electricicity)

I did not know a fatberg could be dealt with by anaerobic digestion. I thought they had to be burned or as I had suggested earlier about being converted to diesel, either bio diesel by transesterifcation or hydrogenation into high spec stuff.

Hey Dimengineer. Vegan or not, Once its stuck in the sewer, the rights and views of the vegans are somewhat irrelavent.  The real issue that fats and oils are goung down the sewer in the first place. Was this a problem in the past or is it due to all the fast food joints and dare I say it, the seamingly large and expanding pool of ignorant, selfish and very stupid people we have here living in the UK, Both indigineous and not so indigineous, whom are clueless and careless about what goes down the plughole.

Linesman, you are absolutely correct, it does not want too many roadmiles or its fuel cost will be higher than its own conversion.

Maybe the fortnightly recycling bin collection requires a collection of used oils and fats to be introduced.
