Every Can Counts is a behavioural change initiative, developed by the drinks can manufacturing and recycling industry and established in 9 EU countries, to raise awareness about ‘recycling on -the-go’. The Every Can Counts program is managed by Alupro Ireland, a not-for-profit company whose objective it is to improve aluminium packaging recycling rates. Its launch in Ireland was supported by the Department of Environment, Repak and industry stakeholders. It marks an on-going commitment by industry to drive up recycling rates, within the workplace and on the go.
Recycling is always an important concern for companies committed to sustainability. Every Can Counts makes it simple and easy for people to recycle drinks cans at work and whilst on the go by helping employers to encourage drinks can recycling within their organization. Every Can Counts is designed to complement existing recycling facilities or as a stand-alone scheme and it is simple to Get Involved all you need to do is log on to www.everycancounts.ie.
Over the past twelve months Alupro Ireland has been working with Origin Green companies to promote the separate recycling of aluminium cans in the workplace, with large companies multi-site groups, like ABP Food Group, Green Isle Foods, part of Northern Foods PLC and Rosderra Irish Meats implementing the programme across their plants. It makes sense for companies to keep cans separately for recycling and deduct the value of the cans from their baseline recycling cost or make recycled cans work in the community, by donating the value of the cans to local community groups such as Tidy Towns as cash or compost or towards well needed funds for schools in the locality. It is a visible commitment to the environment and local community.
Alupro Ireland would like to encourage all Origin Green signatories to engage with Every Can Counts at Future in Food – it is simple to do, virtually free and adds value to your sustainability pillars – manufacturing (waste reduction) and social sustainability (employee wellbeing and company working in the community!) please visit us at stand number 3.
Our credo: The greenest and most profitable energy, is the energy you do not use
Bord Bia – Origin Green – The World’s First National Sustainable Food Movement
Launched in 2012 by Bord Bia, Origin Green is Ireland’s national sustainability programme for Irish food & drink producers to prove their commitment to operating in a sustainable manner. Working across the entire supply chain – from farm to manufacturing – it is the only sustainability programme in the world operating on a national scale.
To date, over 85,000 carbon footprint assessments have been undertaken on Irish farms – a world first. This measurement is being conducted on a national scale, routinely on an 18 month cycle, and doing so in a process of measurement, individual feedback and continuous improvement.
At manufacturing level, participating companies develop target driven, multi-annual sustainability plans. These targets, and the progress towards reaching them, are independently verified and tracked by the internationally recognised auditing body – SGS on an annual basis. Three years since the launch of Origin Green, over 470 of Ireland’s food & drink manufacturers, accounting for over 90% of our food & drink exports, have registered for the programme.
Now Origin Green is writing a new chapter in Ireland’s sustainability story giving buyers access to a safe, secure supply from producers with an independently verified commitment to sustainability.
Calor gas offers significant advantages as an energy solution for businesses in the food sector due to its cleaner burning and environmentally sustainable credentials. As it produces far lower carbon emissions than oil and electricity, it is one of the cleanest conventional fuels available. For businesses which are pro-actively aiming to reduce their carbon footprint, a switch from oil to LPG can have a huge impact. Companies can make the switch to Calor easily, and in many cases by a straightforward conversion of existing equipment. In the case of water heating, there are various highly efficient options such as direct-fired and also instantaneous water heaters which ensure that an ample supply of hot water is available as needed.
As the leading provider of LPG to the Irish market, Calor understands that businesses are looking for the most economical and efficient energy solution available. Calor’s energy advisors can tailor energy solutions for business to help reduce energy costs over the long term and positively impact on carbon footprint.For further information or to speak to a Calor Energy advisor contact Calor on 1850 812 450 (ROI) / 028 9045 5588 (NI).

Fike – Because so much is at stake™
Many processes are designed to run at set pressures for optimum efficiency, many fault situations can occur where this pressure can either be exceeded or a vacuum can be generated. Either occurrence could be catastrophic to life and equipment.
Also, 70% of organic dusts are combustible in the right concentrations, dust explosions are not uncommon in food processing with several high profile incidents over the past few years in UK & Ireland alone, some unfortunately with tragic outcomes.
Fires can start either due to many reasons, not limited to faulty equipment, bad practices/housekeeping or as a result of explosions; these can rapidly spread to other parts of the facility. Fike have an extensive range of fire detection, control & suppression systems including SigniFire – the quickest fire detection system in the market, which can detect fires several minutes before conventional fire detection systems.
Fike can provide you with a total range of products to protect your whole facility against such Pressure, Explosion and Fire events.

Rackard Steam + Biomass Services
STEAM – Steam trap surveys, trouble shooting, system efficiency, and commercial feasibility studies.
BIOMASS – Technical and mechanical feasibility studies, design and execution of biomass systems.
Independent Steam Trap Surveys.
Faulty steam traps cost!
One distribution line steam trap failure on a typical 10 barg steam plant operating 4,000 hrs pa will cost €5,300 in additional fuel costs. (Natural Gas @ €0.033 kWh).
On average a steam trap has a service life of about 5 years. Systematic replacement of steam traps while effective is costly. If steam traps are venting into a common or pressurized condensate return line it can be difficult to determine their condition by normal means. Using the latest ultrasonic equipment and analysis software Rackard Steam + Biomass Services can accurately determine the effective condition of a steam trap thereby saving on fuel and needless replacement costs.
We do not sell steam traps, our sole focus is to give the client the best information and value for money.
