Introducing: Our Recycled Spill Pallet Range

Plastics: a major environmental concern and highly topical, with a recent survey from Greenpeace revealing a shocking state of affairs. The survey revealed that none of the major consumer goods giants responsible for most of the single-use plastic in circulation have any plans to reduce the amount of plastic packaging they produce. It is estimated that 12.7 million tonnes of plastic – everything from plastic bottles and bags to microbeads – end up in our oceans each year. That’s a truck load of rubbish a minute. It is estimated that 50% of all plastics are used just once and thrown away, with a great deal of that ‘waste’ ending up in our oceans. 80% of all trash in the ocean is plastic according to Plasticocean.org. But are plastics all bad? It is often quickly forgotten that they play a pivotal role in day-to-day life in the 21st century. Plastics have...

Wrap Up Warm This Autumn

In certain industries, there is a need to store substances at a specific temperature, predominantly in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, chemical or food and drink arenas. Should the correct temperature not be maintained, the substances can spoil or become dangerous. To combat this and in addition to our heated bunded stores, we have expanded our range to incorporate a variety of original and market-leading electrical surface heating products for both drums and IBCs. These IBC Heaters have been designed for a number of scenarios and provide a safe and cost-effective solution helping ensure the materials are held at the correct temperature while in storage, transportation or within the production/process area. Applying uniform surface heat to a relevant product eliminates concerns for localised overheating and prevents damage to more sensitive materials such as sugars or glucose and other viscous materials such as soaps, fats, foodstuffs, varnishes and chemicals allowing them to be pumped...

Sleep in the Park 2018

In December of last year, five members of the Empteezy and Romold teams took part in Sleep in the Park as part of Social Bite's mission to eradicate homelessness in Scotland. With temperatures dropping to minus 7, whilst there was entertainment and laughs, it was no easy task.  For anyone who has slept outside in sub-zero conditions with a sleeping bag probably not fit for those kind of temperatures, it hurts. Mentally and physically, it is utterly exhausting - your body fights to protect itself from the cold which means you get little to no sleep. The team were lucky enough to be kitted out in thermals and have multiple layers to attempt to keep them warm. They had security to keep them safe. Homeless people do not have those luxuries. At 6.30am, people were allowed to leave. The relief of hot showers and a warm bed helped get the blood...

National Wildlife Day: Why is Spill Prevention So Important?

In conjunction with National Wildlife Day, we take a look at how animals can be affected by a leak of an unnatural substance into a waterway or drain. The Environment Agency are clear in their guidelines on what can and can't be disposed of in drains or waterways - deliberately or accidentally. If you pollute, you are directly responsible and could receive an unlimited fine, go to prison for up to 5 years or both. You may also have to pay the cost of the clean-up. Any substance that cannot be found naturally in an environment has the potential to pollute; shampoo, pesticides, milk, petrol, vegetable oil, slurry, solvents... Some of these substances are directly toxic but others can stop oxygen entering the water, indirectly affecting our wildlife.  The consequences of a spill can be disastrous on any level. It does not have to be on the scale of the Deepwater Horizon oil...
