So if the closed-loop system gets tighter still, we will be looking at a 90-100% efficient Aluminium economy. That's why we chose cans! Obviously they look cool, too, and are fun to crack open.
Initiative 2: Reusing the Cold-Press Pomace
We wanted to find a compelling use for the by-product of our cold-press operation: a load of semi-dry, organic pulp matter (pomace).
We personally delivered about 600kg of this pomace to Burrow Farm (near the manufacturing site in Devon) to help fuel their organic operation, Open Air Dairy. We are crossing our fingers that this pulp proves to be the perfect fertiliser!
Thank you to Neil and the team at Burrow Farm for embracing the experimentation - and our environmental ambitions.
