Aldermaston company push for greener future

Pump Technology Ltd, in Aldermaston, has taken another step forward in environmentally-friendly product development.

The stockist and distributor of the Jung Pumpen wastewater system has formed a new sponsorship relationship with the Rainforest Trust.

The company has teamed up with the Rainforest Trust and for the next 1,000 units of its DrainMajor/DrainMinor pumping system, manufactured from recyclable polyethylene, it will donate £5 to the Rainforest Climate Action Fund for every unit specified.

The fund supports projects that cost-effectively store and sequester vast quantities of carbon.

Up to 2,054,165 acres are conserved either by purchase, special designation or as community reserves, with the estimated carbon stored per acre totalling 141 megatonnes.

Polyethylene is easy to recycle, but tanks manufactured from glass reinforced plastic (GRP) are much more difficult to recycle and dispose of.

The company says the DrainMajor/DrainMinor wastewater pumping system presents the ideal choice for public health engineers seeking an environmentally friendly solution.

Pump Technology Ltd has also recently switched all of its packaging to eco-friendly, green versions.
