Zero waste

Zero Waste

The Group is working to eliminate waste through efficient resource use, segregation of waste into recyclable categories and thereafter energy recovery. Reclassifying wastes as a resource for both recycling and the recovery of heat represents a step change in approach to disposal practice. We continue to seek beneficial routes for recovery or reuse of our process wastes, to avoid landfill. Since 2008 this initiative has already reduced our waste disposal tonnage resulting in a reduced carbon footprint. The value of the renewable energy recovery from both the thermal energy and fat plants is facilitating a significant carbon reduction in the leather manufacturing process by the replacement of fossil fuels.

The plant continues to generate considerable interest from customers worldwide and it has positioned the group as a world leader in sustainable leather manufacturing. Customers continue to respond favourably to this significant investment, as they seek to reduce their own carbon footprint. Thus it is acknowledged that the thermal energy plant is providing us with a significant advantage over our competitors.
