Spill Containment Specialist Sets New Industry Standards With Recycling Investment

Spill Containment Specialist Sets New Industry Standards With Recycling Investment

Empteezy Group installs recycling plant to tackle excess production waste on site

Spill containment specialist Empteezy’s sister manufacturing company Romold is leading the way with a cleaner, greener production waste process at its Livingston facility, which enables waste production material to be 100 percent recycled so that the company no longer has any scrap material leaving the site.
The company is a strong advocate of environmentally friendly processes, and installed the recycling plant to dramatically (Read More)  reduce the disposal of production waste from site and lessen the impact they have on the environment. The company has invested in a pulveriser and granulator to grind down excess material that can then be reused in the production process.
The new plant produces up to 450 kg of recycled material per hour, and once the material has been fully processed the resulting powder is then used in Romold’s production process.
Commenting on the company’s boosted environmental credentials, Romold and Empteezy managing director Bruce Wishart said: “Environmentally friendly waste control is paramount to Empteezy and Romold. The reduction in waste generation from commercial and industrial sites is moving in the right direction but still has a significant way to go.
“High waste generation on industrial sites is unavoidable, so the focus needs to shift to making improvements that really make a difference. By installing the recycling plant, it means that no excess production waste leaves our site, more businesses need to adopt a similar approach if waste generation figures are to be reduced.”
Romold has also seen a period of increased growth marked by a senior appointment to the sales team, rapidly following sister company Empteezy’s expansion and three appointments to sales and marketing to cope with high demand.
Sandra Geddes has been appointed as Romold UK and Ireland sales manager, bringing with her over ten years of industry experience from roles across the waste management, construction and manufacturing sectors.
At Romold, Geddes will use her strong background in these sectors to continue growing the company sales by developing the brand name and attracting new distributors across the UK and Northern Ireland.  
Commenting on her appointment, Romold UK and Ireland sales manager Sandra Geddes said: “I am familiar with Romold’s products from my waste management days and know Romold has a reputation for excellent high-quality products within the spill containment industry, and I look forward to the new challenge and working with such a great team.”
