Firms to test steel separator
Bunting Magnetics Europe has agreed with a customer to conduct tests at site to confirm its separation capabilities. Over the next two weeks, samples from recycling companies are expected to arrive at the firm’s Berkhamsted site for separation tests.
The company unveiled its Stainless Steel Magnetic Separator (pictured) at RWM.
Data destruction service launched
Send & Destroy, the UK’s first postal data destruction service has been launched, offering a secure and environmentally-friendly way for businesses to dispose of their electronic waste.
SMEs can send old or disused data devices including hard drives, USBs and tablets through the post by recorded delivery or tracked courier to be securely destroyed.
Certification for cardboard trays
The Renewable Energy Association has congratulated Moulded Fibre Products, the Scunthorpe based company, for achieving certified compostable product status for its range of trays made from recycled cardboard waste.
The manufacturing of a product that is both made of recycled material and capable of being further recycled in industrial composting processes, underlines the company’s commitment to protect the environment.
DS Smith site helps Eden Project recycle food
DS Smith’s packaging site in Plymouth has contributed to the 20 tonnes of cardboard dust collected and sent to the Eden Project to help turn its food waste into compost.
Since 2009, the two companies have highlighted how a manufacturing by-product can be diverted from landfill to have a positive impact on the environment.
The Plymouth site joined the initiative in 2013, following the successful Eden partnership with the firm’s packaging site in Launceston.
