The Latest Deregulatory Threat to ALL Environmental Laws: “Dangerously Misguided”

  • PDF

leafBIS has just revealed, as part of the Budget’s “Plan for Growth”, that all of Britain's 278 environmental laws are on their list of "red tape" regulations to now be considered for the axe. The Clean Air Act and the Climate Change Act are among the packages of environmental safeguards included in the Government’s "red tape challenge" to establish which regulations restrict business in the UK.

  • PDF

leafHarvard Engineering is pleased to announce it has won a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise, within the Innovation Category.  Harvard have been awarded the Queen’s Award for their innovative wireless street light management system, LeafNut, which is helping local councils around the UK cut energy usage and reduce carbon emissions.
LeafNut allows Local Authorities to cleverly manage their street lights without having to controversially ‘switch off’. There has been much adverse publicity about Local Authorities deciding to switch off street lights due to expenditure cutbacks, particularly following last October’s Chancellor’s Spending Review. The system has proved to be a popular, sensible and safe option for councils trying to reduce their carbon footprint whilst ensuring there is adequate lighting on roads and public areas.

Sanyo wins environment award for pioneering ECO CO2 heat pump based on carbon dioxide

  • PDF

leafSanyo Air Conditioners has won a major national award for its ground-breaking heat pump technology which runs on carbon dioxide refrigerant.
The company’s ECO CO2 heat pump was presented with the Award for Environmental Achievement of the Year in the ACR News magazine awards held last month in London.
Receiving the award at a presentation lunch held at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea FC’s football ground, Bob Cowlard, Sanyo Air Conditioning sales and marketing general manager for Europe, said: “I am delighted to accept the award on behalf of the dedicated and enthusiastic Sanyo team behind the ECO CO2.
“It is independent endorsement of the technical achievement represented by the product and its outstanding environmental performance. With the era of cheap energy over, it is clear that the UK can only achieve its carbon reduction targets if transformational technology such as the ECO CO2 becomes mainstream.
He added: “The response of customers since its launch has been tremendous, and confirms that the product is not only technically advanced and light years ahead of the market, but on track to becoming an unqualified commercial successful.”
The system uses carbon dioxide (CO2) as the refrigerant, which has a major environmental advantage over other vapour compression heat pumps on the market that use potent greenhouse gasses as refrigerants.
