As a forefront leader in bulk materials handling, Spiroflow stands out among the few UK manufacturing businesses committed to achieving carbon-neutral status from emissions reduction. Its goal is attained through carbon footprint assessments and a strategy combining in-house efficiency enhancements with support for external emissions reduction initiatives. As the core of its environmental commitment, Spiroflow’s conveyor belt solutions exemplify how state-of-the-art technology can drive sustainability in the manufacturing sector.

Achieving Carbon-Neutral Status From Emissions Reduction With Pioneering Sustainable Conveyor Solutions

At Spiroflow, the journey toward carbon neutrality is paved with groundbreaking conveyor technologies and a dedication to eco-friendly practices. Its industrial conveyor systems are designed for efficiency and reliability and with a keen eye on reducing environmental impact. As one of the pioneering conveyor systems manufacturers, Spiroflow integrates sustainability into its core, offering conveyor solutions that are as green as they are effective.

Achieving Carbon Neutrality Through Tree Planting

At the heart of Spiroflow’s environmental strategy is its annual tree-planting event at Forrest Hills, part of Lancaster University. This event is a crucial component of the “Forest of the Future” initiative, allowing businesses to offset their annual carbon emissions. For Spiroflow, this meant planting 250 indigenous trees, such as oak and beech, which are projected to neutralize 131 tonnes of CO2 emitted in 2019 over their 40-year growth period.

Understanding and Acting on Carbon Impact

Spiroflow’s environmental journey began with identifying its carbon footprint through Lancaster University’s Low Carbon Innovation Forum and the Making Carbon Work (MaCaW) project. This collaboration gave the company a comprehensive view of its energy usage and carbon emissions, laying the groundwork for impactful changes.

Craig Hollings, a development engineer at Spiroflow, shared, “Once we fully understood what our carbon impact was, we were better placed to do something about it.” The company’s grassroots approach led to several sustainable changes, such as 

  • Switching to LED lighting, 
  • Increasing recycling efforts, 
  • Introducing water bottles to replace plastic cups.
