Using FSM's own fleet of vehicles, we collect product from food manufacturers,supermarkets and the hospitality sector across the length and breadth of Ireland. FSM's state of the art facilities enables us to recover 100% of all food collected for the biogas industry. We were one of the first companies in Ireland to operate CNG (Compressed Natural Gas or Biomethane) fuelled vehicles and we will convert our fleet to CNG as quick as the refuelling network allows.
CNG is the natural gas used in homes and industry just compressed for transport and Biomethane refers to the exact same type of gas but generated from the food waste we collect.Using Gas for transport reduces CO2 emissions by 15% over diesel, and using the biomethane generated from the food waste reduces CO2 by over 90%. They both also significantly reduce harmful NOx emissions which is particularly beneficial in urban environments. Food Surplus Management Vehicles can run on CNG or Biogas or a mixture of both. All food collected by FSM is processed in Anaerobic Digestion Plants that produce Biogas which is used to fuel our CNG Vehicles creating a circular economy .
FSM operate a fleet of over 25 trucks custom designed vehicles to allow us to collect from the high street supermarket to the large scale supermarket. Our fleet consists of double decker trailers and rigids and some smaller custom designed vehicles for smaller collections. For bulk collections we also operate 45ft curtainsiders, bulk trailers and tankers when required.
We have large double decker collection vehicles and smaller vehicles for more difficult to access locations.
