Keeping costs down while complying with environmental legislation

The mining and quarrying sector is like no other

Operators work in some of the most demanding environments – quite literally at the coal face – to produce the asphalt that is used to construct over 95% of the country’s roads.1 But the energy-hungry processes used to produce this material for the nation’s paths, pavements, playgrounds and car parks carries a heavy environmental price, emitting almost a million tonnes of harmful CO2 each year.2


Businesses face the challenge of meeting exacting customer demands while at the same time complying with tough environmental legislation like the Medium Combustion Plant Directive (MCPD).Switching to cleaner-burning Calor LPG can help you meet your green targets, cut your fuel costs and keep your customers happy.
