CBE+ are pleased to announce they are the latest member of the Betterworld.Solutions initiative led by AESSEAL.

Businesses often have opportunities to improve the environment and prevent global warming but can sometimes fail to identify them. Our suppliers, co-workers and customers can bring environmental sustainability initiatives to our attention, but only if we make listening to them a business priority. The purpose of the Betterworld.Solutions initiative is to encourage companies to adopt, publish and operate an Investment Policy to Prevent Global Warming.

We have recently published our own Policy to Prevent Global Warming. 

Sustainability and the environment isn’t a new topic to us. Not only have we halved our emissions by 50% through consolidating all our production to one site in 2022, but we have also invested £0.75M in a combined heat and power system which will further reduce our carbon footprint. The power and heat generation system matches CBE+ production process demands. We partnered with Levercor to develop and commission the system at their Chesterfield facility.

Levercor and CBE+ spent several months fully understanding the power and heat demand profiles working together to develop a bespoke system, tailored to fit our processes and unique to our facility. The system works by capturing the heat generated as a by-product of the electrical power generation and uses it to provide heat energy, warming the tanks for surface treatment processes.

Alongside our combined heat and power system, we have installed an effluent plant. This plant is used to filter and neutralise all waste chemically generated on site, allowing environmentally safe disposal and recycling.

This system is an important addition to our Electroless Nickel Plating (ENP) process. We are heavily reliant on the use of chemicals within our ENP process. The new effluent system is in place to purify all solutions produced in the plating process and restore them to environmentally friendly standards, approved by Yorkshire Water
