Porter and Woodman Turns the Winter Blues Green!


As part of Porter and Woodman’s ongoing investment in a greener future, the recent refurbishment of its Stourbridge premises included the purchase of a Biomass Waste Burning System.

The aim of this investment was to improve the carbon neutrality and efficiency of the business, adding to its existing environmental policy, which includes efficient waste management and the sourcing of FSC materials for its wide range of products.

The biomass burner has contributed greatly to this ambition, taking wood waste that would have gone to landfill and turning it into energy to heat the 10,000 sq. ft production facilities through the winter months.

The Group’s two main manufacturing businesses, Chalkboards UK and WoodenBox UK benefit from the new installation as they produce over 400 Kg of wood waste daily between them. It means that 104 Tonnes of waste a year is not going to landfill - the equivalent of over 130 Mini cars every year; and no gas is being used to heat the facilities in the colder months.

The elimination of landfill, reduction in the use of gas and the fact that the biomass burner complies with the latest Government emission regulations, means that Porter and Woodman Group is well on its way to achieving carbon neutrality and is looking to the future for the company and the environment as a whole.
