Zero waste

Bridge of Weir is working to eliminate waste through efficient resource use, segregation of waste into recyclable categories and thereafter energy recovery. Reclassifying wastes as a resource for both recycling and the recovery of heat represents a step change in approach to disposal practice. We continue to seek beneficial routes for recovery or reuse of our process wastes, to avoid landfill. Since 2008 this initiative has already reduced our waste disposal tonnage resulting in a reduced carbon footprint. The value of the renewable energy recovery from both the thermal energy and fat plants is facilitating a significant carbon reduction in the leather manufacturing process by the replacement of fossil fuels.
