Griffith Foods saves over 3 tonnes of carbon emissions in transformational new construction project

Published on Wednesday 11 May 2022

Global food product developer and manufacturer, Griffith Foods, has transformed its main entrance and car park at its Alfreton site with help from waste plastic company, MacRebur.


MacRebur processes waste plastics destined for landfill and adds them into asphalt for road and surface construction. Completed within seven days, approximately 1,600 sqm of Griffith Foods’ land has been resurfaced – installing new kerbs and steps to link the car park to the footpath.
 
Using MacRebur’s unique MR8 product, the equivalent in weight of 181,620 single use plastic bags was saved and offset 3423.5kg of CO² emissions.
 
Toby McCartney, CEO and co-founder of MacRebur, said: “Joining forces with another like-minded company that has the same morals as us is always encouraging. 
 
“We’re delighted to have been part of the project, which represents a substantial investment in excess of £70k by Griffith Foods in safeguarding its site for the future. We’re looking forward to working on future projects with Griffith Foods.”
 
First established in 2016, MacRebur’s waste plastic roads not only cost less to manufacture, but they also use up problematic waste plastics destined for landfill or incineration to provide a more durable road surface.
 
Tony Pearce, project engineer at Griffith Foods, said: “Our vision here at Griffith Foods is to create a more sustainable world and being a vehicle for the greater good – that has been at the heart of our company since the beginning.
 
“With emissions on the rise and an ever-growing climate crisis, we considered what more we could do to help minimise this, whilst also providing a safe workspace for our staff. As our core values aligned, it made sense for us to collaborate and work with MacRebur, and we’re delighted with the finished product.
 
“We’re excited to continue working with MacRebur as an additional area of the car park is set to be altered and resurfaced in the future.”
