Yin Noe Wins March's Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award!

Tue, 26 March 2019

Yin Noe won March's Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award for her business, Coillection.

Business Description

Coillection is an online platform that helps households in the UK better dispose of used cooking oil by providing an efficient and innovative solution for collection of the waste oil. Used cooking oil can be converted into biodiesel which is a carbon neutral fuel and an important renewable energy source; Coillection is taking advantage of this resource across the domestic sphere. Instead of households pouring oil down the kitchen sink where it can solidify in the pipes causing blockages and damaging the surrounding environment, Coillection will collect the used cooking oil from houses and school collection points directly via a provided container.
In addition, a fundamental part of its mission is to give back to society by using proceeds from the sale of UCO to fund scholarships, improve schools’ infrastructure and increase environmental awareness of the issue. 
Commiserations to Marwa Ebrahim (Atypical Cosmetics), Harrison Hall (OneCup), David Jaramillo (VEO Mobility) and Isaac Ramonet (Pure Air Industries)  who were shortlisted but did not win this time and are encouraged to reapply.
