As part of Veolia Environment, the world leader in environmental services, ELGA Process Water has a strong commitment to reduce carbon emissions. This culture is reflected in all activities from the carbon emissions we are directly responsible for, to how we can help our customers reduce their impact on the environment.
Our ongoing commitment to reduce emissions
ELGA Process Water's head office is based in an award winning building which has achieved a top BREEAM rating for energy efficiency. We have strong recycling programs at all our offices and with the introduction of digital communications technology, we have reduced our paper usage by over 25,000 sheets per year.
Staff are incentivised to choose low carbon cars, and our aim is to reduce travel further by using web cam meeting technology, which has recently been implemented at all our offices in the UK.
At our regeneration station in Stoke on Trent, we have implemented a waste to energy scheme where we are converting waste resin into solid recovered fuel (SRF), which replaces precious fossil fuel. The bottom ash can be recycled for construction and road building.
Our SDI/Cylinder exchange delivery service use low emission vehicles and route planning technology to ensure an efficient delivery system throughout the UK.
As part of our commitment to ISO 14001, we will continue to build on these achievements and fund additional projects to continue reducing our impact on the environment.
