Fiacre O’Donnell: Guided Tour of Encirc Bottle Manufacturing, Eniskillen
21 June 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Join a guided tour of Encirc Bottle Manufacturing Facility!
In the glass industry we think of glass in 3 areas. Best for health, taste and environment. Whilst the first 2 ‘bests’ are without contention, glass being an inert product doesn’t release anything into the product or react to anything from the product, thus preserving the taste of the product and the health aspect of the consumer, the environment section is a challenge. Although 100% recyclable, glass does have to focus on emissions from the fuels we use in furnaces, the emissions from raw materials and the transportation challenges of moving a product heavier than all its rival packaging products. Vidrala Group are tackling these projects head on and with the recent acceptance of the SBTi 1.5o are making a public statement of intent on the environment.
Fiacre O’Donnell, Sustainability Director at Encirc Bottle Manufacturing, Northern Ireland will accompany this tour providing invaluable information about the glass industry.
