A Sleaford area company is making giant strides to be more eco-friendly.
Top 15 UK food company Moy Park has drastically reduced fuel-oil consumption at its Anwick site following the installation of a state-of-the-art heat recovery system.
The revolutionary heating system is the first of its kind in the world and has helped the company reduce oil usage by 600,000 litres a year, as well as reducing Moy Park’s carbon emissions by 1,430 tonnes of eCo2 - equivalent to 185 UK homes.
The system’s exclusive configuration means that the Anwick factory utilises waste refrigeration heat which would normally be discarded outdoors. The recovered heat is then used instead of boilers to heat water for processing. The system has also lowered water and chemical consumption from the site’s cooling towers resulting in less waste.
Moy Park general manager Ben Carrigan said: “The results we have witnessed so far from the new system have been astonishing.”
