Our power consumption has reduced by 84% in a trial of innovative new technology at one of our biggest bioresources plants at Davyhulme in Manchester. The trial, which was funded by Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator and supported by The Carbon Trust, involved replacing centrifuges with a new system called Volute. Volute revolves just twice a minute, compared to traditional centrifuges which can reach speeds of up to 3,500 revolutions per minute, and is reducing carbon emissions from our bioresources sites.
This weekend we were lucky enough to meet some of our customers in the North West. We were proud to be the principal sponsors of Warrington Disability Day for the 30th anniversary event and we were also proud to partner Keswick Mountain Festival. Thanks to our support, the festival featured an accessibility zone for the first time - a place to encourage disabled visitors to take part in sport. At both of these events it was great to see customers sharing water saving pledges and signing up to our Priority Services scheme – a free service offered to customers who need additional support.
