Why Glaston specialises in energy-efficient compressed air systems

Glaston Compressor Services were recently awarded carbon-neutral status by The Making Carbon Work Project (MaCaW). We spoke to Michael Douglas at Glaston Compressor Services about the benefits of choosing energy-efficient compressed air systems-from a carbon-neutral air compressor supplier.

What is The Making Carbon Work Project?

“The Making Carbon Work (MaCaW) Project was designed to assist Lancashire based small businesses such as ourselves, to move towards becoming carbon neutral. Funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and managed by UCLAN, MaCaW is also supported by Lancashire business growth hub, Boost” explains Michael Douglas from Glaston

Glaston have always looked to be as environmentally friendly as possible and with MaCaW’s support, they were able to implement low-energy practices in order to reduce our carbon footprint which has resulted in not only delivering huge savings for them, but has also reduced the impact Glaston has on the environment.

Why was Glaston recognised as a carbon-neutral air compressor supplier

A carbon-neutral company is one where carbon emissions produced are balanced out by funding an equivalent amount of carbon savings elsewhere. “Back in 2015, we had solar panels installed to provide the energy required for the work we do day-to-day at Glaston HQ. During the carbon report carried out by representatives from MaCaW, it was discovered that the energy produced by our solar panels offsets the costs of the other power sources we use, making us a carbon-neutral company” explains Michael.

Of course, Glaston have not stopped there. The representatives also helped us to identify opportunities for us to improve our energy performance, reduce energy wastage and find potential areas where low-carbon technologies can be installed to reduce carbon emissions.
