HVO fuel to power Main and Registration pavilions at Hillhead 2022

Hillhead 2022 - 21 to 23 June 2022 at Hillhead Quarry, Buxton, Derbyshire, UK

To ensure a more sustainable experience for visitors and exhibitors, QMJ Group, organiser of Hillhead, is launching a number of initiatives at this year’s event.

The exhibition organiser announced that all the electrics serving the 270 exhibitors in the main indoor exhibition areas at Hillhead will be powered by Crown HVO Fuel. Swapping from fossil fuel to HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) will help reduce up to 90% of net CO2 emissions.

They are also encouraging people to car share. Car sharing is a great way to reduce the cost of travelling to the show, reduce congestion, and, most of all, helps deliver a more environmentally friendly event.

In addition, more facilities than ever before will be available throughout the site to maximize the recycling options for visitors’ waste. These will include dedicated bins for food waste, dry recycling (paper, card, tin, aluminium etc), general waste, and glass. Skips will also be available throughout the build and breakdown periods for exhibitors to recycle wood, metals, and general waste.

The official caterers for Hillhead are eliminating all single-use plastics, including plastic utensils, straws, and water bottles. Please bring a reusable bottle to the show or buy a Hillhead-branded one from our merchandise shop at RC23.

The organiser has also partnered with BauWatch to provide a solar-powered security solution throughout the site using their ‘Solar Duo’ self-powered tower system. The organizers will also be experimenting with other solar-powered applications with a view to increasing the amount of solar power used as part of the energy mix going forward.

Hillhead takes place from 21–23 June 2022 at Hillhead Quarry, near Buxton.
