UK’s first supplier of green aggregate materials SandandStone has signed an agreement with Green Biofuels.
The agreement enables the business to deliver all of its remediation and aggregate projects with minimal environmental impact and carbon emissions.
All logistics and transport operations used by SandandStone will be fuelled by Green D+ HVO that can reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by up to 90%, NOx by up to 30% and particulates by up to 85%.
By using Green D+ HVO in machinery that digs, grades, and processes aggregates, the embodied carbon of the final products is lowered.
SandandStone estimates it will extract, process and distribute 250,000 tonnes per year.
The stones extracted during remediation are used in construction projects across Scotland, the North of England, London, and Essex.
Georgina Duncan, director at SandandStone, said: “We’re proud to be the first provider of green aggregates. As the construction industry is becoming increasingly aware of its environmental impact, we provide a solution for companies that demand sustainability across supply chains.
“Our partner, Green Biofuels, has collaborated closely with us to make this happen. Their genuine concern for the environment and air quality has led them to creating market-leading solutions which we are very happy to have at our disposal.”
William Tebbit, of Green Biofuels, added: “Businesses that are helping to lower the emissions of entire supply chains are doing the right thing for our planet. SandandStone is already making a huge difference to local air quality by using low emission solutions today, and by supporting other construction companies in their own green efforts, SandandStone’s work will have long reaching benefits for the environment.
“Green Biofuels is proud to be partnered with SandandStone in their mission to bring greater sustainability to the construction industry.”
