Circularity of product design / sustainable innovations
Circular manufacturing We use our own process waste as fuel in a patented circular manufacturing process . Our thermal energy plant reclaims energy as both steam or a biofuel co product from our waste streams and uses some of this heat to directly power our tannery . This minimises waste to landfill and radically reduces our corporate and product carbon footprint .
