Environmental Policy statement
At BioteCH4 we are committed to working within the community, offering sustainable solutions that create a more sustainable environment. Our anaerobic digestion (AD) plants and waste transfer station are designed to transform food waste into renewable energy.
With our sustainable outlook and a drive to innovate, just being carbon neutral is not enough. So, we are turning other outputs of AD into practical green products, including:
· Hot water
· Soil conditioner for local farmers that reduces the need for inorganic fertilisers
Our facilities along with their associated Biomethane plants, are a prescribed activity under the Environmental Protection (England and Wales) Regulations 2007. BioteCH4 will observe the requirements laid down by the Environment Agency and ensure that all its activities are carried out in conformance with the relevant environmental legislation. We will work closely with all appropriate external authorities to meet all regulatory and legislative requirements. This policy describes how we will achieve our aim.
This environmental policy applies to all our operations including management, office services, delivery and procurement. The Compliance team are responsible for ensuring that the policy is implemented. However, all colleagues of BioteCH4 are committed to the care of the environment and the prevention of pollution. This ranks equally with our commitment to the health and safety and welfare of our colleagues, and the quality of the services we provide to our customers.
We will focus primarily on the aspects of our operations with the greatest potential for environmental impact. Based on an initial assessment we recognise that our operations result in emissions to air and potentially to water. We will continue to develop our site and our objective will be to develop
· Processes of measuring our operation
· Understanding those results
· Controlling any variation in the results so that we can then quantify our improvement programme.
We will also ensure that all colleagues receive training and awareness in all the aspects of the Environmental Management System (EMS).
We will continue to see positive developments to the sites and in that respect any new investments in plant and operations will incorporate the best environmental techniques that are commercially viable.
This Policy and the obligations and responsibilities required by the Environmental Permit will be communicated to colleagues as appropriate. This policy is publicly available to interested parties on request.
