The record was that of the lowest carbon footprint per mile by a Biomass Gasification CHP system whilst moving around the UK, when for the first time we moved 2 @Wegsheid Entrenco systems for export from our Chester base to the @Port of Southampton by rail. Working with our shipping partner @inexpress, Railfreight and Great Western Railway we estimate the journey had a carbon footprint of approximately 115 Kgs of CO2, the conventional road footprint being approximately 429Kgs of CO2 (or 210kgs per system), 373% higher or put another way, a reduction of  73 % when shipping by rail  . The switch to rail next year has the potential to reduce our Carbon Footprint by 1.44 tonnes.

The containers left the UK in the last days of 2022 on the @HMM HANBADA enroute to Kobe in Japan via Singapore. The HANBADA entered service in 2021 and is a 161,000 d.w.t., state of the art Container ship with a consequently lower carbon footprint relative to the industry average.

Unfortunately getting a container to the Far East by ship has a somewhat larger footprint than a trip from Chester to Southampton! and we estimate this at 1.46 t per system, however the switch to rail still achieves a 9.5% overall reduction on the journey footprint from the @University of Chester’s Thornton Science Park Chester to Kobe and it is via such small steps that we will move our business to beyond Net Zero and achieve Carbon Drawdown.
