Case Study: Low carbon footprint, secondary aggregate
In Summer 2021, GRS commissioned environmental consultants Metis, to look at the carbon footprint of our Cornish aggregate material in comparison to other primary aggregate that are imported to the SE of England. The result is very impressive with a carbon reduction of over 75% when compared to publicly available figures for a generic primary material.
The study looks at the material at quarry level, on the basis that almost all crushed rock then has to travel into the South East market by sea or rail. When talking about these figures, we can further enhance the sustainability message by mentioning that the processing plant is run off wind derived electricity and uses water from our own borehole.
