In 2017, we were delighted to install a recycling plant within our Livingston factory to tackle excess production waste on site.
The current total commercial and industrial waste generated in the UK has reduced from 33.9 million tonnes in 2010 to 27.9 million tonnes in 2014, but that figure is unacceptable and there is still significant progress to be made.
Romold feels passionately that a change is needed and we are leading the way with a cleaner, greener production waste process at our Livingston facility, which enables waste production material to be 100 percent recycled so that we no longer has any scrap material leaving the site.
We are a strong advocate of environmentally friendly processes, and have installed the recycling plant to dramatically reduce the dispose of production waste from site and lessen the impact we have on the environment.
As a result, we have invested in a pulveriser and granulator to grind down excess material that can then be reused in the production process producing up to 450kg of recycled material per hour. Once the material has been fully processed, the resulting powder is then integrated back into the production process.
Commenting on the company’s boosted environmental credentials, our managing director Bruce Wishart said: “Environmentally friendly waste control is paramount to Empteezy and Romold. The reduction in waste generation from commercial and industrial sites is moving in the right direction but still has a significant way to go."
“High waste generation on industrial sites is unavoidable, so the focus needs to shift to making improvements that really make a difference. By installing the recycling plant, it means that no excess production waste leaves our site, more businesses need to adopt a similar approach if waste generation figures are to be reduced.”
