The world is facing some serious economic and environmental challenges that will impact us all. Building a cleaner, greener economy will be essential for our future… and to do this will require a whole host of measures including reductions in energy intensity, improving energy efficiencies, switching to cleaner greener fuels and securing more sustainable energy supplies, to name but a few. This presentation looks at the measures now being taken to build the UK’s low carbon economy, what’s required, and how the UK is leading the world in this important area.
The following presentation takes a look at a renewable energy for business case study involving a UK chemical company based in Newport, South Wales. It looks at how they became more energy efficient, generating their own energy and even exporting electricity back to the grid.
The following video looks at an example of a well-designed local exhaust ventilation (LEV) system in a school that controls well, is easy to operate and maintain and has low running costs. It looks at the use of an Atex compliant centralised vacuum extraction system used in a schools woodworking classroom and the benefits it can deliver.
This brief guide is about the process of rainwater harvesting and reusing water for alternative purposes. Rainwater harvesting describes the process of capturing of rainwater and water run-off for reuse, as opposed to allowing it to run-off to the drainage system.
The following presentation takes a look how the UK is becoming a leading low carbon economy, generating renewable energy with the application of emerging technologies to create the UK’s clean energy of the future. Developing world-class technologies including solar power, biofuels, carbon capture and storage (CCS) and on and off shore wind energy the UK is leading the world in this important area of renewable energy generation.
The following safety video looks at ways of improving dust extraction and control in woodworking environments, and in particular how to improve dust control measures at circular saw benches. It looks at ways to control the risks to workers health from exposure to wood dust, dust extraction systems and how those risks can be controlled to create a better, safer working environment.
With the increasing cost of energy, pressures to reduce waste, improve environmental performance and energy efficiency at work many businesses are now looking at ways of saving energy and reducing costs in this important area. In the UK almost a third of small to medium sized businesses identify the cost of energy as a block affecting their future chances of success. Identifying ways in which these businesses can improve their energy efficiency and so reduce energy costs is probably one of the best, and potentially easiest ways of improving their potential for improved profitability and growth over the long-term.
The following presentation considers issues around pollution prevention and control for UK business, looking at the potential effects pollution incidents can have on our environment including streams, rivers, watercourses and groundwater resources. It considers the consequences of a pollution incident and looks at practical ways UK businesses can help manage the risks of pollution to protect the environment. It looks at the importance of understanding on-site drainage systems, the management of waste streams, waste management, the disposal of trade effluent, preventing groundwater pollution and how to deal with a pollution incident.
