Approximately 65 people are employed at the 25,000 square foot BD Living Coalville factory. Previously BD living were disposing of 270 tonnes of wood waste each year and their factory was heated by a gas system.
BD Living wanted to reduce the cost both financially and environmentally for disposing of their wood waste, so decided to invest into a Talbott ‘MWE’ biomass boiler and Untha Wood Shredder. They also took the opportunity to upgrade their wood waste extraction system, supplied by Air Plants Dust Extraction Ltd, Leicester.
They opted for a Talbott MWE300 solution and Untha LR700 shredder, with pipe work distribution supplied by Air Plants Heating. Talbott’s and Air Plants worked closely to manage the full turnkey project in order to ensure minimum disruption to production and smooth operation.
