Neutral Carbon Piece

Electrium. Net Zero in 2022.

The carbon reduction team at Electrium is managing several initiatives that will bring about net zero on carbon emissions from its production plants by the end of 2022.

Electrium has two production facilities in the North West of England where many of its products are manufactured.

These facilities are being upgraded through the installation of sustainable energy sources, cleaner/greener heating & lighting equipment and improved performance production materials.

PV Systems, Wind Power & Led Lighting

At its Wythenshawe production plant Electrium has installed a 120kW PV system, and a 200kW system is being installed at the Hindley Green factory & warehouse facility.

These significant milestones in the move to use sustainable electrical energy sources are complemented by the policy to only make any other electricity purchases from wind generated renewable sources.

In addition the lighting systems are being fully converted to LED technology, which lowers the lighting energy usage significantly.

Biomass Boiler

The installation of a Biomass boiler will remove harmful greenhouse gasses that are produced by traditional gas boilers which exhaust CO2 into the atmosphere.

By moving to a heating system that does not produce greenhouse gases there’s a contribution towards cleaner air initiatives too.

Low Temperature Paints

Meanwhile in its production processes Electrium has worked closely with its paint supplier to develop a low temperature curing paint that allows the drying chambers to run at significantly reduced temperatures and further reduce energy usage.

Approved Standards

Electrium is approved by Alcumus ISOQAR as compliant to ISO 14001 the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system, and has been awarded the sustainable business certification by Groundworks.

Groundworks is an organisation that encourages creation of green jobs that build wealth in local communities, changing behaviour to reduce wasted food, energy and water, providing biodiverse, accessible green spaces, supporting businesses to be more responsible and empowering communities to lead activities that improve their quality of life and promote health and wellbeing.
