Annual Environmental Savings: over 280 tonnes of CO2
Ikea is committed to being an environmentally responsible company. Balcas Energy supplies their 1200kW Gilles boiler with a constant supply of wood pellets. On average IKEA uses 233 tonnes of Balcas Energy wood pellets each year. The cost of this in oil (priced at £0.60 per litre) would have equated to £68,500, saving the company £29,356 per year.
Boiler: 4MW Wood Pellet Fuelled Steam Boiler
Annual Environmental Savings: Over 4000 tonnes of CO2 (equivalent to taking 1200 family cars off the road)
Storage: Two Pellet Silos Tomatin Distillery had an ambition to make its manufacturing process more sustainable.
