    Animal manure has long been recognised as a valuable fertiliser and a source of renewable energy. It is also a major source of pollution, with emissions from stored manure accounting for approximately 15% of all agricultural greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and more than 70% of all ammonia emissions in Europe.

    Ion Science - new protection against VOCs

    Offering a new level of enhanced, reliable protection against VOCs with the first 11.7 Cub personal solution from ION Science.

    In a 2018 report from the UN, it was revealed that a worker dies every 30 seconds due to exposure to toxic gases in the workplace. That such statistics still exist today is one of the reasons ION Science is working hard to create protective technologies for workers against VOC exposure. The new 11.7 eV Cub personal solution is the first of its kind and promises to be a game-changer for protection against exposure.

    ion science VOC sensorThe Cub 11.7 eV personal device is the latest addition to ION Science's world-leadingrange of gas and leak detection products. Using their 30 years of industry experienceand their extensive knowledge of both volatile organic compounds (VOCs) andphotoionisation detection (PID), ION Science continue to deliver excellence in protection for workers.

    The 11.7 eV sensor lamp is a notoriously difficult lamp to manufacture. Due to its highly sensitive nature, 11.7 eV devices in the past have been temperamental, require frequent lamp changes and ultimately end up with increased environmental exposure, affecting performance of the device.

    ION Science has tackled this issue and developed a refined manufacturing method that eliminates some of the sensitivities and issues previously associated with 11.7 eV detection.

    As the first 11.7 personal detection solution from ION Science, the Cub 11.7 offers all the features a customer would expect from the market leader.

    This includes resistance to humidity and moisture, operational in temperatures from 0-55 degrees, and intrinsically safe even in explosive environments. Its lightweight design at only 111g makes it comfortable for wearers and the small size doesn't impede movement or work.

    Unrivalled Gas Detection.

New warehouse for Monmouthshire brewery will save 330,000 km of lorry journeys

A new Welsh brewery warehouse near Newport measuring five football pitches is set to remove the need for 330,000 kilometres of lorry journeys, and save the carbon dioxide emission equivalent of 52 households.

magor-wales2The new facility, opened by Jessica Morden MP at AB InBev's Magor Brewery, is estimated to save 289 metric tonnes of CO2 and remove the need many thousands of miles of lorry journeys required to transfer goods between external warehouses and the brewery during 2013-14. The warehouse reduces CO2 emission by replacing the need for the brewery to use external storage sites.

Jessica Morden, MP for Newport East, was at the brewery warehouse unveiling along with John Griffiths, Assembly Member for Newport East, Tony Monteiro, Brewery Manager and members of the brewery team who worked on the project.

The warehouse is a next step in Magor Brewery's ongoing efforts to help AB InBev achieve its global environmental performance targets. Millions of pounds have been invested over several years at the brewery which has helped to improve its waste recycling rate to 99.8% and reduce CO2 emissions per hectolitre of production by 23.3%. Since the start of 2011, more than six million hectolitres of water have been saved at the brewery - enough to fill 244 Olympic sized swimming pools. The onsite Environmental Committee - a team of employees at the brewery who find new ways to be a sustainable business - has driven employee-led changes and introduced new innovations to help the brewery reduce its environmental impact.

web-magor2--Speaking at the unveiling Jessica Morden MP, commented: "The brewery is an important part of the community in this area and I know how hard both management and local trade unions have worked to lower the impact on the environment. It is therefore with pride that I am cutting the ribbon on the new development as this is yet another important commitment that will further reduce the CO2 emissions. This is a project that will benefit the brewery, the staff and the wider community."

AB InBev UK's work to reduce water and waste was recognised with the visit of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales to Magor Brewery in November 2011. During his visit, Prince Charles met members of the brewery's Environment Committee and saw how energy reduction methods have been implemented throughout the site, with a particular focus on high energy areas such as refrigeration and the packaging lines.

Magor Brewery has also adopted an ambitious energy reduction programme in order to help AB InBev UK achieve its new seven global environment goals across recycling, carbon reduction and water saving projects.
