Soyang Europe builds sustainable future for customers with Reconomy

Soyang Europe has been working with Reconomy to offer customers access to environmentally focused and responsible waste management services

International circular economy specialist Reconomy has revealed how its relationship with wide-format and superwide-format media manufacturer and distributor Soyang Europe is helping UK print service providers to improve their environmental credentials.

Reconomy combines technology and skills to enable businesses to better manage their resources, helping to reduce waste, optimise their supply chains, and contribute in a meaningful way towards the circular economy.

While this involves working directly with print companies, Reconomy is also partnered with several leading manufacturers and distributors, supporting their customers with textile waste management. One such partnership is with Soyang Europe, whereby printers using materials from Soyang Europe can responsibly dispose of their waste.

This partnership came about three years ago with the support of FESPA UK. Reconomy was working on various sustainability initiatives with FESPA, while Soyang Europe is a long-term member of the association.

The process works with Reconomy providing customers with a baler to prepare their textile waste. Soyang Europe then collects the bales when delivering new products to customers, with the waste taken to its facility in Altham in Lancashire ready for bulk collection and transportation to a recycling facility for processing.

“It was a perfect fit,” said Reconomy Director, Jon Hutton. “Soyang has always been proactive in wanting to offer their customers, and the wider industry, waste management solutions for their products.

“Sustainability is a hot topic for several reasons. Brands and consumers are looking down the supply chain for environmental credentials, so it’s therefore a driving factor in how to not only maintain and gain business, but how a printer positions themselves for the long term.”

Mark Mashiter, Managing Director at Soyang Europe, added, “It provides our customers with an outlet for their waste. This works well with local customers when we deliver orders to them; we can bring any textile bales back with us and store them in our yard until they are collected.”

Renewable energy and recycling materials

Originally, Reconomy had sourced a solution for recycling PVC banner and polyester fabrics at a UK site, whereby waste was blended with other polymers to produce low grade products. While

this process ended when more desirable material became available to the market, a recovery route was soon set up and, with the support of Wheeldon Brothers, waste could now be diverted from landfill to renewable energy.

However, recycling has since been re-established and material is again being used in manufacturing processes. Coupled with its use for renewable energy, all of this is helping work towards a circular economy.

An additional benefit to the service is that Soyang Europe is willing to take other supplier’s waste textiles along with its own. This option is available to customers using their own transport within a set radius of Soyang Europe’s facility and when making deliveries.

“Soyang Europe wants to be part of the environmental solution and not the problem,” Jon said. “The take-back scheme provides a platform for printers to demonstrate their sustainability by providing customers with an outlet for their

recycling waste.

“Several customers have engaged with Reconomy further and are now collecting their own clients’ end-of-campaign textiles, integrating this with the collection of their materials. All loads are tracked, and Certificates of Recycling can be issued once the material has been processed.”

The work does not stop here for Reconomy, with Jon saying the company will continue to work with Soyang Europe, FESPA UK and its wider membership base to provide more sustainable solutions to the UK industry.

“It’s our aim to continue to be a driving force in educating the industry on the importance of recycling & developing circular economies,” Jon said. “This, with the continued support of Soyang Europe, will ensure more customers take up this service.”

Waste, Recycling & Forestry Equipment Company of the Year

Making the UK greener today

We are delighted to welcome back CRJ Services as our Waste, Recycling & Forestry Equipment Company of the Year

Positive start for 2024

It’s been a busy twelve months for CRJ Services from showcasing the HAAS Tyron 2000XL at ScotPlant 2024, winning the Jenz Dealer of the year 2023 at the Jenz Annual Dealer Conference and now getting ready to celebrate a fantastic 25 years in the sector.

“CRJ has continued to grow by taking on more skilled team members, adding more brands to our portfolio, all within a challenging economic and political landscape.

“Firstly, high interest rates have made it difficult for customers to agree to large capital expenditure on assets and secondly, it also makes it more expensive to add assets into our hire fleet.

“Having a double election in the UK and USA this year also creates global economic doubt and will defer industry decision making.

“Despite this, the hire revenue and spare parts revenue at CRJ Services are well ahead of forecast, with our machine sales being in line with forecast. We became the exclusive distributor for Pronar Trommels in the UK and Ireland at the end of 2023. This allows us to sell as well as hire trommels now – which is a great success. We have also taken on a new site near to our existing site which will provide us with additional engineering workshop space and increase our hires capacity,” outlined Andrew Clarkson, Finance Director.

Waste and recycling management: green giants Established in 1999, CRJ Services is a

comprehensive waste, recycling and forestry equipment provider and is one of the largest operating throughout the UK and Ireland, delivering quality machinery and reliable service to more than 300 customers.

The machinery solutions provider has seen rapid growth over the last three years in particular as waste and recycling management becomes a key priority for many industries, with the advent of the 2050 Net-Zero targets set by the UK Government and renewed focus on the circular economy.

Providing first-class customer service: sector specialists

Working across the waste management, forestry and quarrying sectors, CRJ operates a hire fleet of over 130 mobile and static processing machinesdesigned for shredding, screening, washing and sorting a wide range of waste streams. These include: shredders, trommels, flat deck screeners, density separators, eddy current separators, water baths, and picking stations. The Cheshire site holds an expansive stock of spare parts, in excess of £2.5M for all hire and purchased equipment. The company places great emphasis on customer service and has field engineers on standby for a rapid-tiered response to machinery malfunction, with on-site visits planned within same day or maximum within 24 hours.

“We are the market-leader in the hire of machinery into the UK and Ireland and our large machinery can cope with most waste, recycling or forestry challenges. With our focus on the waste, recycling

and forestry markets, we are seen as experts rather than a supplier that deals in general hire plant and accessories and tries to be everything to everyone.”

Going the extra mile: pushing green change from piecemeal to strategic action

CRJ Services don’t just supply machines: they have a vested interest in moving the industry towards more sustainable best practice. Extensive waste collection research by the company, conducted over a seven year period revealed that six of the ten biggest UK local councils have seen a substantial dip in dry recycling over the last four years and more worryingly, seven had actually seen an increase in waste to landfill/incineration.

CRJ’s solution to suppressing POPs

With an innovative, pro-active approach, CRJ Services has looked at a novel dust suppression method when shredding household furniture like sofas. Many sofas contain toxic, carcinogenic Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) which are invisible and harm human health and the wider environment. The Environment Agency has brought in legislation around the storage and disposal of such furniture for this reason and this lab-tested dust suppression meets the latest compliance.

Unique ‘swing program’: minimising downtime

Many waste companies are now working on short-long term contracts and require flexible hire options going forward.

“We pride ourselves on service – not just selling or hiring a machine. We understand that our customers are likely to be tied into a contract, where penalties will have to be paid if they don't process the tonnage. So, it's vital in this case that we get an engineer out tout suite, in the event of a breakdown. We also have to be easy to deal with and so we have quite a flat management structure with team members able to make decisions.


“We also operate a swing programme so that if we can't fix a machine, we will swap it out with another machine that we always have on standby, within a guaranteed time, minimising customer downtime. None of our competitors offer this and we are proud of our customer services approach.”

CRJ Services operates a rapid four-tiered approach to all engineering call-outs:

1. Engineers try to diagnose the problem over the phone using the telematics diagnostic software installed on every machine (hire or purchase)

2. On-site visit if required on the same day or within 24 hours

3. Product specialist support

4. Original Manufacturers’ support

HAAS Tyron slow-speed shredder

The HAAS Tyron is used across many applications from biomass, commercial and industrial waste, mattresses, metals, plastics, tree roots, wood and many more.

The HAAS Tyron is a powerful, twin-shaft, slow speed shredder, with a robust and renowned

strength. CRJ has 32 of the Tyron 2000XL 2.0 models in their comprehensive hire fleet and they were a big hit at ScotPlant 2024.

It is popular for the following reasons: t versatility in various applications t ease of change of settings depending on application t unique independent twin-shaft reverse mechanism, protecting against fibrous materials causing blockages.

This shredder has a wide 1,400mm outfeed belt with discharge height up to 4,800mm, easy on-site manoeuvrability, low fuel consumption, enhanced safety features such as the traffic light system, remote-control adjustments, and the ground level maintenance chamber access doors.

From HAAS to Pronar Trommels: sign of the times CRJ Services is now the proud, exclusive distributor for Pronar Trommels in the UK and Ireland from the end of last year.

“Though our HAAS shredder is a perennial popular model, we are now introducing the industry to our Pronar machinery capability.

“The Pronar MPB 20.55 is a mobile trommel screen, available for hire or purchase. It can be used across a wide range of applications, such as: metals, skip waste, tree roots, wood, biomass, commercial and industrial waste, construction and demolition waste, organic waste, through to paper and cardboard and Japanese Knotweed. It is a robust, easily to maintain and operate machine that can compete on price and performance with the industry leaders and compliments CRJ’s existing portfolio perfectly.”

Company of the Year: moving forward

“We are delighted to receive the Waste, Recycling & Forestry Equipment Company of the Year from Sustainability Today. It's a great award and TeamCRJ deserve it: they have worked really hard to turn CRJ into the fantastic specialist business it is today, with amazing customer service to boot. Going forward, both short- and long-term, we believe there's lots of growth areas that we can move into across additional products and untapped geographical areas, so watch this space! “

Think Trenchless First: First National Trenchless Conference

Define trenchless technology

The United Kingdom Society for Trenchless Technology (UKSTT) defines Trenchless Technology as follows, “Trenchless Technology is the science of installing, repairing or renewing underground pipes, ducts and cables using techniques that minimise or eliminate the need for excavation.”

These techniques have multiple benefits over traditional open cut methods of installation, renewal or repair such as minimal environmental impacts, fewer disruptions, reduced total costs and safer working practices for all.

Role of UKSTT

UKSTT is a membership organisation, established in 1993 to promote the use of trenchless technology, largely for public benefit across the UK. The Lancashire-based organisation was formed after incorporating the UK-based members of ISTT and has continued to offer training and education across the civil engineering trenchless sector.

UKSTT’s range of trenchless solutions offer key advantages across inspection & detection, cleaning methods, renovation, new installations, and keyhole & other techniques. The target customer base includes: manufacturers, contractors, utility owners, students and service providers.

have an action-packed conference programme for the day.”

The programme sessions will be as follows:

t Session 1: Trenchless – demonstrating the benefits

t Session 2: Standards & Regulations – help or hindrance

t Session 3: Recruitment into Trenchless – meeting demand

t Session 4: Increasing Awareness of Trenchless Options

t Session 5: Future Opportunities

The cost of the conference is £100 for members and £125 (plus VAT) for non-members and delegates will hear from senior representatives at UKSTT, IKT – Institute for Underground Technology, Picote Solutions, Morrison Water Services, SGN plus many more expert speakers.

Benefits of trenchless technology

Exclusive conference announcement

We spoke to Lynn Maclachlan, Associate Director, who has some exciting news to share, “We are delighted to announce that we are running our first UKSTT National Trenchless Conference on the 11th June 2024 at the Manufacturing Technology Centre, Ansty Business Park in Coventry. Our members and non-members are both welcome to attend and we

The aim of this conference and future conferences is to raise the profile of trenchless technology, with its extensive societal, economic and environmental benefits such as:

t Minimised environmental impact – this is the optimised choice for digging under rivers, creeks and any deemed ‘sensitive’ environmental area, therefore mitigating risks to local biodiversity on the water surface. Excavating and exposed open cuts can also cause substantial more air pollution than trenchless technology.

t Reduced disruptions – trenchless technology can install new utility systems or repair existing ones with minimal noise or utility disruption. Open cut excavation would mean closing whole roads and creating diversions, which could lead to congestion, whereas trenchless technology carries out the same work without huge traffic infrastructure disruptions.

t Cost-effective – though there are more expensive upfront costs with trenchless technology, in the long-run it saves costs on the avoidance of costly utility relocation and business downtime.

t Safety at all costs – trenchless technology is safer than open trenches, with less soil moved, therefore avoiding landslides and unknown hazards in the soil.

Meeting the needs of a sustainability

UKSTT recently celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2023 and remains a forerunner of environmental preservation with its innovative trenchless methods. Now moving into its fourth decade, UKSTT has achieved many milestones across its illustrious history, and today its top mission remains the same:

to advance the science of practice of trenchless technology for the public benefit and to promote education, training, study and research in the practice and to publish the results.

With all eyes on the circular economy and the UK Government’s 2050 Net Zero targets, climate change and protecting local biodiversity are a priority for UKSTT moving forward. By putting itself in the centre of the action, UKSTT remains focused on promoting its cutting-edge technology for the benefit of the environment and everyone involved.

“UKSTT moved away from other organisations providing their secretariat services to being selfsufficient back in 2022.

“Moving forward, we will continue to find new ways to educate the UK and promote the use of trenchless technology rather than using opencut methods.”

Low Carbon Agriculture 2024 Review –

For a profitable and sustainable farming future

Low Carbon Agriculture 2024, held at NAEC Stoneleigh from 6-7 March 2024, is the vibrant business event for forward-thinking farmers, landowners and industry operators.

The show explored ways to address climate change through the generation of renewable energy, the implementation of low carbon technology and best practice in both carbon and environmental land management.

The UK is committed to achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) emissions by 2050, and the agricultural sector is uniquely placed to be part of the solution. This event is all about how this will be delivered.

In addition to producing our food, the agricultural and rural communities have an essential role to play in the pursuit of our environmental targets and

the transition of our energy system from fossil-based systems to clean and renewable alternatives. Low Carbon Agriculture could help visitors to transform their business, generate clean energy and reduce both carbon footprint and environmental impact.

Low Carbon Agriculture featured four dynamic, content-led expos

Launched in 2010, the Energy Now Expo showcased the latest renewable and clean energy opportunities and technologies available to farmers and landowners, while also providing guidance on areas such as energy management and the optimisation of existing assets.

The Environmental Business Expo considered the path to net zero in agriculture and the challenge of balancing sustainable food production with environmental needs. It hosted an exhibition of product and service suppliers, as well as a

Ground Source Heat Pumps

Do you know that because they use freely available heat energy from the ground, Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHP) achieve higher efficiencies than any other heating system?

By delivering up to 4 times (on average) more heat energy than the consumed electricity to run the unit, a heat pump can reduce a building’s heating costs by around two-thirds compared to direct electric heating.

dedicated conference programme.

The Low Emission Vehicles Expo featured the latest low and zero carbon vehicles and machinery, as well as non-fossil fuel options, including clean electricity, biomethane and hydrogen. The associated opportunities available to farmers and landowners were promoted and discussed and test drives of the low/ zero carbon innovations were available throughout the event: environmental land management, regenerative farming, sustainability and the management & reduction of harmful GHG emissions.

The Farm Technology Expo turned the spotlight onto the innovative technologies and practices set to transform the agricultural industry. This part of the show looked at how agriculture can boost productivity, in an environmentally friendly fashion, thus creating a profitable and sustainable sector. The latest innovations in agri-tech were on display in the exhibition, while talks were delivered in the dedicated farm tech theatre, providing further insight and guidance on how these technologies benefit agricultural businesses.

Low Carbon Agriculture 2025 returns to NAEC Stoneleigh from 5-6 March 2025. This is our pick of the best exhibitors from this year’s event, listed here in alphabetical order: Allen Motor Group, Cefetra, Eco Crops & Go Geothermal. Further details can be found on this page and the next three.

The cost of heating a rural property can be extremely expensive and with net zero targets in place, that’s why farmers and landowners are increasingly turning to renewable energy solutions like GSHP.

Using a GSHP, farmers benefit from lower energy bills of up to 70% versus using a traditional gas or electric boiler system.

For sites that use lots of heat in their operations, such as poultry farms, indoor crop growing and hay drying, a cheaper source of heat is a welcome way to cut energy costs and reduce the carbon footprint.

Poultry farms are a particularly good example of how a switch to renewable energy can pay major dividends. GSHP offer a good solution for poultry units, with a low carbon footprint and the advantage that they can cool as well as warm spaces to keep a flock at the ideal temperature, whatever the weather.

Go Geothermal was recently involved in a project which saw us supplying GSHP and ancillaries at a poultry farm in Yorkshire. The farmer wanted to increase the heat in his chicken sheds to improve the welfare of his birds and this subsequently resulted in higher egg production rates.

Whether its hotels, holiday let owners or even historic properties, no rural buildings are off limits when it comes to renewable energy.

Combining heat pumps – we also have air source heat pumps too including the state-of-the-art premium CTC 700 series – with technologies like solar photovoltaic (PV) systems can create a robust and sustainable energy mix, and depending on your own situation there are various grants which can be accessed too.

Grants of up to £7,500 are available through the Boiler Upgrade Scheme to put towards the cost of a GSHP for a property you own (including a business or a second home) if you are replacing fossil fuel heating systems – such as oil, gas, electric or LPG.

And farmers are eligible to apply for a minimum of £15,000 and a maximum of £100,000 towards the cost of Solar PV equipment as part of Round 2 of the Improving Farm Productivity Grant. This means you should see a return on investment fairly quickly, in addition to the ethical move you have made to switch by switching to more environmentally friendly heating systems.

Go Geothermal’s range of CTC Ground Source Heat Pumps provide an ideal solution and come with the Made in Sweden guarantee of quality. And with support available from initial conception through to installation, we are true one-stop-shop for all renewable energy heating needs in agriculture.

Calls for global action

Bluewater calls for global action on PFAS contamination on World Water Day 2024, says manufacturers should assume full responsibility and halt production.

In response to recent findings exposing the presence of harmful PFAS contaminants in the tap water of 70 million Americans, Bluewater, a pioneering brand delivering water purification solutions and beverages, is urging for increased public vigilance and intervention from national health and water authorities this World Water Day 2024. Bluewater is spotlighting the intensifying global crisis of water contamination by PFAS persistent chemicals, now widely detected in tap water worldwide and posing a threat to human health.

“Our mission at Bluewater is to protect people by preventing hazardous chemicals such as PFAS from getting into their bodies. PFAS isn’t a localised issue. It’s a global health crisis spiralling out of control,” says Bengt Rittri, a leading Swedish environmental entrepreneur who founded & leads Bluewater as CEO.

Fortifying arable farming against the onslaught of climate change

Cefetra participation at Low Carbon Agriculture 2024, confirmed its leading role in bringing payments for nature positive interventions to UK and Irish farmers. Cefetra showcased its Ecosystem Services that has received an overwhelming response from farmers across the country.

Uwe Schröder, Head of Cefetra Ecosystem Services, commented, “Participating in this event and listening to the insightful presentations reaffirms that we are at the forefront when it comes to offering a practical and most importantly, bankable proposition to farmers in the UK & Ireland who want to engage with regenerative agriculture. Our customers can be confident that the benefits embedded in the cereals we sell them, are science based & verified to the highest standard.”

The effects of climate change are tangible and in urgent need of addressing. Cefetra has partnered with Soil Capital to provide farmers a way to receive payments for climate positive farming practices. The programme results in carbon reductions and removals and measurable benefits for biodiversity, water, landscapes and resilience to the effects of climate change. The programme turns a global challenge

into an opportunity for UK and Irish farmers to future proof their businesses.

Buyers of Uk grown grains supplied from the programme can be confident that their investment has tangible effects on improving their supply chains.

Cefetra’s Ecosystem Services offers a proven, verified, high standard, certification process that contributes to the future of sustainable farming and creates a bridge between industry demand and rewarding farmers for implementing measurable sustainable practices. For its partners in the feed, food, drink and bioenergy sectors, Cefetra’s farming program isn’t just about reducing carbon footprints, its about pioneering climate positive interventions.

In recent investigations to raise public awareness of the problem in London & Stockholm, Bluewater found evidence in both cities of worrying levels of the most hazardous PFAS chemicals, PFOA & PFOS.

“As we commemorate World Water Day 2024, Bluewater encourages everyone to consider tap water quality and to take action towards better health and a sustainable planet. We also urge the manufacturers of PFAS chemicals to take responsibility for the pollution they are causing and — preferably — stop their production of such chemicals entirely,” said Bengt Rittri.

Economic benefits

Electric vehicles are incredibly efficient, enabling lower operating costs over time than traditional internal combustion vehicles. Operating electric vehicles can save money on both fuel and maintenance expenses. This is especially beneficial for businesses that operate a fleet of vehicles, as they can see significant savings over time.

Stop/start operations

The Electric Goupil is better suited to stop-start operations compared to diesel vehicles. Diesel particulate filters (DPFs), designed to capture and store exhaust soot to reduce emissions, can pose problems. If not regularly and sufficiently heated, these filters can become clogged, leading to expensive maintenance and repair costs.

No special charging infrastructure required

Charging a Goupil G4 is a straightforward process; equipped with a single-phase onboard charger, the Goupil’s plug into any 230V/13A domestic socket, negating the need for any additional electric charger installation.

Compact size

The Goupil G4’s compact size and manoeuvrability make them ideally suited for urban environments, where space is premium and navigating crowded streets can be challenging.
