FCC backs duty of care drive
FCC Environment has backed the Right Waste, Right Place campaign designed to drive duty of care compliance and which is funded by the Environment Agency, Chartered Institute of Waste Management and the Environmental Services Association Educational Trust.
A website and other key materials will be targeted towards small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and other specific sectors, initially construction and agriculture.
FCC Environment says the campaign echoes its own efforts to encourage SMEs to be responsible in their disposal of waste.
Eunomia appoints CE team leader
Eunomia has announced a new resource efficiency and circular economy team to be led by Mark Hilton, who brings over 30 years’ experience from both industry and consultancy.
The Manchester-based team is working on projects including a study on circular economy indicators for the European Commission.
It is also working for Zero Waste Scotland on reverse logistics and procurement in the circular economy and on resource efficient construction, as well as a study with WRAP on more durable products.
All aboard for plastic pirate ship
Staff from Ipswich social enterprise Eco Furniture have launched an impressive new product made out of 100% recycled plastics – a 30-foot long Tudor/pirate galleon play boat (pictured).
Built at Eco Furniture’s factory in The Drift, Ipswich, the square-rigged galleon, comes complete with separate decks which will take up to 30 children. It can be built in two sizes, with flags and an access ramp for wheelchairs or buggies.
It is made out of plastic planks from thousands of recycled plastic bottles, plastic bags, and other plastics such as CD cases.
Jaguar uses Novelis’ 75% recycled alloy
Aluminium recycler Novelis’ new automotive product containing 75% recycled content has been successfully integrated into the structural components of high volume production passenger vehicles.
Its RC5754 alloy was developed with Jaguar Land Rover and serves as a key component of the automotive firm’s Recycled Aluminium Car project.
To be first used in the Jaguar XE, the alloy will also be featured in all of the firm’s new and classic models.
