Eco-friendly heating system installed at NewMet GmbH
Heat pumps are a renewable energy technology that converts energy in the ground or air into heat.
This process uses far less energy than traditional heating systems such as gas.
The system at NewMet GmbH converts energy in the air into heat and is capable of heating our building on its own as long as the outside temperature does not drop below -5 °C.
Cyclescheme introduced at NewMet and Packstat
Our staff at NewMet in Waltham Abbey and Packstat in South Wales enjoy access to Cyclescheme. In Waltham Abbey, where the scheme is more mature, numbers of staff cycling to work have increased by 30%, with benefits in personal wellbeing and reduced carbon emissions to the environment.
In order to reduce the use of vehicles for short trips between NewMet sites in Waltham Abbey, company bicycles have been provided which reduce air pollution and congestion within the town.
