Reducing our GHG footprint – energy consumption
Reducing energy consumption and optimising operational productivity Open accordion

We have reduced our GHG footprint by implementing a range of measures in the last 12 months.

Reducing energy consumption and optimising operational productivity
East Calder wastewater treatment facility Open accordion

At our East Calder Wastewater Treatment site in Scotland, we optimised the Gravity Belt Thickener (GBT) to save an equivalent of
35,040 transport miles

 

District Heating Networks Open accordion

We implemented energy savings across our District Heating Networks (DHN) through control improvements, which reduced our gas and biomass usage. At our Erith Park & Brook House DHN, London, we have saved around
500MWh of gas a year

Hatton wastewater treatment facility Open accordion

We introduced control changes to our Hatton Wastewater Treatment site in Dundee to enable additional volumes of biogas to heat the dryer, offsetting
844,714 kWh of natural gas

Lossiemouth wastewater treatment facility Open accordion

At the Lossiemouth Wastewater Treatment site in Scotland, we introduced auto-controls to our belt press, saving
58,000 kWh of electricity

Tidworth water and wastewater facility Open accordion

In Wiltshire, we introduced Real-Time Control (RTC) optimisation at our Tidworth water and wastewater site, saving
131,400kWh electrical power

South East London combined heat and power Open accordion

At the South East London Combined Heat & Power (SELCHP) ERF, boiler house lighting was upgraded to LED lighting, resulting in
electricity savings of 5,000kWh

Ellesmere Port Open accordion

At Ellesmere Port, a secondary air fan inverter was installed within the High-Temperature Incinerator (HTI), reducing electricity consumption by
347,760 kWh annually

Tree planting to offset the carbon impact of our websites Open accordion

We use the Website Carbon Calculator (www.websitecarbon.com) to work out the carbon emissions generated by running our three main online marketing channels – www.veolia.co.uk, www.sustainability.veolia.co.uk and www.netzero.veolia.co.uk.

In total, the operating the websites requires
710kWh of electricity
every year. To offset the associated carbon impact
we planted 16 trees
