Christeyns keep sustainability on track with solar and water projects

Just like their project to install solar panels to their Christeyns Rutland Street production building in Bradford which is well underway. With a completion on track to finish in March, the project should be ready to catch the spring sunshine.

When fully operational the solar array will contribute upwards of 50MWh of power towards the demand of their EV chargers, office and powder production unit whilst saving over 10 tonnes of CO2 emissions. This is in line with Christeyns group policy to install solar where practical to reduce carbon footprint and increase energy resilience.

Another project underway on Christeyns’ road to sustainability is about water recovery. Justin Kerslake, operations director tells us: “A good example is the way that we collect water used during chemical pump deliveries at customer’s sites. After each chemical is pumped the delivery pipework is washed out. By collecting the water, we don’t discharge on the customers premises and we can return the water back to Bradford for reuse in production. Of course, the water is mixed with residual chemical so needs collecting separately and categorising. We’ve been doing this for over a decade.
