Getting the l’eau down

first_imgMuch is made of ’greenwashing’ – the slightly sneery term levelled at businesses accused of hooking on to environmental schemes and painting themselves as tree- huggers. But for once, companies are being asked to take the term more literally and greenwash more. To do this, they need to be washing less.Confused? Put simply, manufacturers are being urged to take a more green approach to washing, effluent disposal and other uses of water. Food and drink production accounts for around 10% of all water used in UK industry and targets have been set to cut water usage by 20% by 2020, as part of The Federation House Commitment.It hardly needs pointing out that this cut, targeted by the Food & Drink Federation (FDF) with resource efficiency advisers Envirowise, would also mean 20% off the water bill. So how far down the line is the baking industry on water efficiency?a no-brainerForward-thinking businesses are already tackling it; to them the benefits are a no-brainer: water costs around 1% of a firm’s turnover, while advisory body Envirowise estimates that resource wastage can cost up to £1,000 per employee. “We have a number of projects under way to recycle water and reduce our usage. Such actions make sense for our business and the environment,” says Robert Schofield, CEO of Premier Foods, owner of RHM and British Bakeries.While bakers may not use as much water as, say, fruit and veg, usage, extraction, heating and pumping of water all have an environmental impact. David Fish, executive chairman of United Biscuits says: “As a company we are not heavy users of water, but this does not mean it is not important to reduce the amount we use.”So why commit to an industry-wide scheme? While most mana-gers are now aware of green business issues, their eyes are often too glued to sales spreadsheets to systematically tackle the issues. “The environment is a broad-reaching topic and you can become stuck in the discussion around the environment and less focused on the action you need to take,” says Fiona Dawson, MD of Mars Snackfood UK and chair of the FDF’s steering group on sustainability.This new scheme is supposed to offer a structured framework for companies to take action – an approach that has paid off for Scottish baker R Mathieson & Sons. It introduced a waste minimisation programme at its Falkirk bakery, appointing a “waste champion” to raise awareness and come up with initiatives. This reduced water consumption and effluent disposal costs, and all new employees at the 400-strong firm now undergo a waste minimi- sation training programme as part of the induction process.measure and manageThe trick is to treat water as if it were any other resource, much as Walkers Crisps now says it does. But far too many don’t even measure how much water they use. And if you don’t measure it, you can’t manage it. One of the first steps in the Commitment is to establish a baseline; the next is to measure site-specific water usage; action plans are then put in place against each site; and, finally, Envirowise will collate that data and publish it annually to show how much progress is being made.Savings in effluent and water costs of 20-30% can be made with almost no investment, claims Envirowise. Apart from using water meters and monitoring effluent at its commercial site, 40-shop Waterfields (Leigh) has installed a 3-cubic-metre box to collect the water off the office roof, which is then pumped through to clean the vans. “It might not be saving a huge amount but it’s a contribution,” says 2007 Baker of the Year John Waterfield. “It’s good practice to reduce it.”Greggs has also installed water meters in all of its bakeries, as well as taking water usage measurements on key pieces of equipment, such as tray washers. While the initial focus has been on tackling the bakeries, the next step will be rolling this out to its estate of shops.A spokesperson for Greggs says: “In all our newly-built bakeries we’re aiming to reuse water wherever possible. For example some of our grey water is used for washing our vehicle fleets. And we do have a small number of shops that are metered and that’s something that we’re looking to improve further in 2008.”More companies are investing in ’cleaning-in-place’ technologies – systems designed for automatic cleaning and disinfecting plant without major disassembly and assembly work – that need less water without compromising health and safety. Others are switching to non-water cooling technology, as Mars has done, bringing a 40% reduction in water used per tonne of product made.capital investmentSuch changes may need capital investment; Envirowise runs the Water Technology list for HM Revenue & Customs; this gives enhanced capital allowance for expenditure on the equipment featured on the list. So it helps with the payback time by improving the cashflow for companies that qualify.But it’s not just about plugging expensive gizmos into your plant. It is simpler – and cheaper – to change employees’ attitudes. Phil Annandale, Macphie’s environment manager, says equipment has been modified on-site and leaks fixed, but crucially, a water-saving culture is being promoted to achieve ongoing reductions.Water is not often seen as an expensive resource, and one which should be treated with great respect. “This Commitment shows attitudes are changing – but not in every company yet,” says Dr Stuart Ballinger, strategy director for Envirowise. Turning off taps, installing spray taps and water control devices all help.”The baking industry is no different to any other sector: you’ve got the ’washed and the unwashed’ – a proportion of businesses that are setting the standards and others that are further behind. But just through low-cost or no-cost initiatives, businesses can make savings. Measuring the successes and cele-brating that is very important to keep people improving.”invitation to take partThe FDF now wants to extend the initiative by inviting businesses, small and large, to take part in the scheme. Fiona Dawson of Mars says: “If this commitment were to be rolled out, not just to FDF members, we estimate that the savings could be up to the equivalent of 56 Olympic-sized swimming pools.”Paul Freeston, CEO of commitment signatories Apetito, parent company of pastry products manufacturer Waldens, adds that the environmental benefits of cutting water use go beyond the factory’s four walls: “It’s easy to take water for granted – but it’s a scarce and finite resource. It also requires energy and resources to collect, purify, distribute and clean up after we’ve used it.” n* To sign up to the Federation House Commitment visit: [http://www.fhc2020.co.uk]last_img read more

Listen To The Movement’s New Jam ‘Dancehall’ Ft. Mr. Williamz – Premiere

first_imgThere’s a reason this band is called The Movement. One listen, and you’re sure to be moving and grooving along to their reggae-influenced tunes. With a new album, Golden, due out on April 8th, and a major cross-country tour in support of it, there’s just no telling how high this band can climb.Based out of Columbia, SC, The Movement’s newest album takes its inspiration for the inter-connectedness of the galaxy and human DNA. “I really started to like the idea behind the Fibonacci Code, the Golden Ratio, Golden Mean, Golden Spiral,” says guitarist/vocalist Joshua Swain. “I liked the idea of searching for order and commonality in the chaos. Add to that the idea of requiring a “heart of gold” to inject beauty and goodness into the order and using the word golden as a synonym for perfect… It just made sense to me.”We’re happy to share the very first track from this new release, a song entitled “Dancehall.” Stream the new jam, featuring Mr. Williamz, below:We asked Swain to shed some light on the track’s origins. “Dancehall started out as a slow acoustic ballad, but we felt it wasn’t really living up to its name, so we had to spice it up a little. We were fortunate enough to link up with Mr. Williamz, and with three distinct parts in both style and tempo, we created a unique tale of lost love, music, and magic in the Caribbean,” he said.Golden is not only due out on April 8th, but it will mark the first release on the Rootfire Cooperative, a not-for-profit record label that is owned and operated by artists. Rootfire founder Seth Herman passionately states, “I hope the Rootfire Cooperative can provide micro-financing with the effect of boosting the artists business; and make a positive effect on an entire genre of music.”Check out the full tracklisting for Golden, and don’t miss the band on tour.

The group has been touring nationally in support of heavyweights like Umphrey’s McGee, moe. and Papadosio, as well as playing numerous national and regional music festivals like The Peach Music Festival and Summer Camp Music Festival. They’ve certainly played shows in Colorado—like last year’s inaugural Canyon Jam at the Mishawaka Amphitheatre and a support slot during UM’s most recent New Year’s run—but Aqueous has yet to headline their very own high-profile show at one of the city’s historic venues. That all changes when Aqueous takes the stage at the Bluebird Theater on June 9th, 2018.“Denver is by far one of AQ’s favorite cities to play music in; Colorado just seems to totally get it, and some of our favorite sets of the past year have gone down out there,” shares guitarist and vocalist Mike Gantzer. “We’re gonna go really big for this Bluebird show, and we can’t wait to rage properly with the CO fans on this one!”Tickets go on sale this coming Friday, March 23rd at 10 a.m. MST. They can be purchased here.For more information about the Bluebird Theater performance or any of Aqueous’ other upcoming shows, head to the band’s website.last_img read more

Spencer Dinwiddie injury update: Nets guard (thumb) to return vs. Hornets

first_img Dwyane Wade on wild buzzer-beater: ‘I told Steph I needed this one’ “It’s unbelievable how fast he is, how just the talent screams at you,” Atkinson said. “It’s just great to have him back.”Dinwiddie is averaging 17.2 points and five assists this season. He’s shooting 46.1 percent from the field and 36.6 percent from 3-point range. Spencer Dinwiddie is returning to the court.The 25-year-old guard will play in the Nets’ matchup with the Hornets on Friday, coach Kenny Atkinson told reporters. Dinwiddie missed the last 14 games with a thumb injury that required surgery. “Three days post-op I was already running and doing all that stuff so my routine, although obviously not playing, hadn’t really changed in terms of getting work in,” Dinwiddie said about the injury. “Obviously being on the sidelines and watching your team play is always hard.”The Nets will enter their matchup against the Hornets in sixth place of the Eastern Conference with a 32-31 record.
