A BLOCK manufacturer has reduced its CO2 emissions by 44.5%, according to a new report by the Carbon Trust.

The study revealed that Lignacite Ltd, based at Brandon, Suffolk, had reduced its emission through increased production efficiency from the company's recently-commissioned plant, as the new machinery has raised output while saving energy.

A large part of the saving also comes from new, well-insulated curing chambers.

“We're very pleased with the figures from the Carbon Trust report,” said managing director Giles de Lotbiniere. “We were always very keen to make sure that the new plant saved energy as well as increasing production.”
