Ways to make your factory more eco-friendly

The widespread focus on sustainability has never been greater and manufacturers are actively seeking ways to become more environmentally friendly.

In this blog post, we’ll look at how you can lessen your factory’s impact on the environment and continue to drive positive changes within the industry:

Reduce energy consumption

One of the most significant ways to reduce your energy consumption and make your factory more sustainable, is by investing in energy-efficient machinery and equipment. By simply upgrading inefficient machinery, you will lower your energy consumption and bills.

At Paramount, we take sustainability seriously and are proud to offer Fuji’s new Alpha 8 wrapper, which is significantly more energy efficient than other alternatives on the market. Since introducing this new technology and optimising processes, Fuji has attained a 20% energy saving, a reduction in setup and changeover times and a further reduction in film waste!

Switch to sustainable packaging

Avoiding single-use plastic and non-recyclable materials for your packaging will make a massive difference. Instead, opt for eco-friendly alternative packaging solutions.

Our Fuji horizontal flow wrapping machines handle recyclable, biodegradable and compostable materials, making it easy to switch to eco-friendly alternatives. During Foodex 2023, we ran fully kerbside recyclable paper material through the Alpha 8 wrapper and the attendees were hugely impressed with the results.

Regular machine maintenance

It is vital to carry out regular maintenance on your equipment to ensure your machinery is highly energy efficient and to reduce emissions. Alongside reducing energy waste, regular maintenance will also help to prevent unexpected downtime and costly repairs or replacements.

Paramount’s team of service technicians are always on hand to maintain the full Fuji packaging range of wrapping machines. Get in touch to ensure your machine remains energy efficient and discuss a service contract or plan that suits your business.

Reduce waste

A simple way to limit your effect on the environment is to reduce the amount of waste going into landfill.

At Paramount, we have been working with a major supermarket and have successfully cut 97 tonnes of PVC from the supply chain, by removing all the PVC used on the existing overwrap from one line within the packhouse.

We also help to reduce food waste, as Fuji’s high quality packaging machines achieve a longer pack life and keep the product fresher for longer. If you would like to reduce waste and achieve outstanding results for your business, our team is always happy to help.

Use renewable energy sources

To minimise your impact on the environment, it is vital to carefully select suppliers who prioritise sustainability and offer environmentally friendly materials and machinery.

As part of our ongoing commitment to sustainability, we supply Fuji’s machines which are built using renewable energy, in addition the state-of-the-art Fuji factory in Japan uses clean energy to aid global environmental conservation.

Future proof your business

Investing in the right sustainable technology will ensure you can meet current and future demands.

With Fuji’s latest technology you can make a seamless transition to using sustainable packaging and future proof your business.

By supporting training on latest sustainable machinery and eco-friendly practices, you will create environmental awareness across your business, to ensure corporate social responsibility continues long into the future.
