UCO TRADING SPAIN has been selected as finalist in the category of Rising Star Company for those founded after 2013. As a business that is establishing itself as a key player within the circular economy & the renewable energy industry, UCO TRADING Spain has successfully positioned itself on the world stage, as a trading startup that is gaining ground on established giants.
Often described as “the Oscars of the energy industry”, the S&P Global Platts Global Energy Awards achievements in innovation, leadership, and company performance in 22 categories spanning the entire energy complex.
UCO TRADING SPAIN is an international company that trades commodities, by-products and end products within the biofuels industry. Using circular economy principles, its main feature is that they only work with sustainable-certified products. They are experts on obtaining commodities from waste and transforming them into biofuel.
Using waste and residues as raw materials UCO TRADING SPAIN supports the transition to a renewable and more sustainable economy by replacing finite recourses such as fossil fuels. It helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions, environmental pollution, and diminishes demand for landfills. Furthermore, their use can reduce the pressure on agricultural crop land, as waste and residues do not compete with food or feed crops for the arable land.
Jenny Salinas, Vice President, Marketing, S&P Global Platts commented, “This year’s complement of 196 finalists truly indicates the outstanding innovation and supreme leadership occurring in so many sectors across our industries. Companies are tackling critical issues such as emissions control, digitization, investment to improve the quality of life, and so much more. We are proud to honor these individuals and companies on their achievements.”
