Rebates from waste materials

In addition to making your company greener, we can save you money too.

We saved a food manufacturer over £600k by engineering a bespoke piece of equipment to extract residual food waste from their packaging.

The outcomes, aside from cost savings, were capturing and utilising the excess product and further reducing waste.
