Exova BM TRADA helps EGGER reduce environmental impact

  • 15 Aug 2018

Exova BM TRADA has provided EGGER (UK) Ltd, a leading name in the manufacturing of wood-based materials, with ISO 50001 Energy Management certification.

The sustainable use of raw materials is a big priority for EGGER (UK) via generating heat in its biomass power plants and using environmentally friendly logistics systems.

Increasing energy costs and more fierce regulatory pressure to lower greenhouse gas emissions make the need for effective energy management essential for all organisations.

The reason Exova BM TRADA was chosen to conduct the ISO 50001 Energy Management certification was because it had previously carried out certification work with EGGER (UK) Ltd.

The standard offers a robust framework for optimising the use of energy and improving energy management.

Paul Turner, EGGER (UK) Ltd’s Environmental & Health & Safety Manager, commented: “EGGER is extremely focused on reducing its environmental impact. We worked with Exova BM TRADA during the ISO 14001 certification process, and the team’s professionalism and understanding of our site operational activities clearly indicated that we would work with them again.

“When ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme) requirements were initiated from central government as a legal requirement, we were encouraged to address both ESOS and ISO 50001 at the same time, understanding that ISO certification was important for achieving a proactive and ongoing level of commitment and performance. Exova BM TRADA was instrumental in our success.”

EGGER (UK)’s certified Hexham (England) and Barony (Scotland) sites have reaped benefits from the standard, as it has seen the optimisation of energy-related schemes, including a centralised compressed air system at the Barony plant.

The manufacture of particleboard and related products was certified for both plants.

Rob Veitch, EVP Fire and Building Products, Element, said: “We are pleased to have a good relationship with EGGER (UK) Ltd after providing the company with both ISO 14001 Environmental Management and ISO 50001 Energy Management certification.

“EGGER is committed to high quality standards and the minimisation of environmental impact. Having your energy management system certified by our experts demonstrates dedication to energy reduction, best practice and sustainability.”
