Renewable fuel and energy production solutions reduce your total cost of ownership – Case Study
Biomass represents a fastgrowing solution for renewable fuel, which can help reduce the need for foreign oil and provide an environmentally-friendly alternative for energy production. Typical biomass sources include switchgrass, hemp, wheat straw, corn stover, woody materials, and sugarcane tops. It is no wonder why biomass is capturing so much market interest as a replacement for coal in energy production as it produces less sulfur, significantly less CO2, and less ash, than typical coal fuel production....

ISO 50001: the route to successful energy and carbon management
ISO 50001 isn`t one of those certificates that you work hard to gain and then quietly forget; it`s the backbone of successful day-to-day energy and carbon management. The international energy management standard draws on global best practice from more than 50 countries. Evidence shows that ISO50001 accredited organisations are achieving energy performance improvements of 10 per cent or more, often through low and no-cost measures. It specifies the requirements for building, maintaining and continually improving...
