Interface Europe achieves energy goal

Home Press Release Interface Europe achieves energy goal

London — Interface Europe said that as of January it has been operating with 100% renewable energy (both electricity and gas), using virtually zero water in its manufacturing processes and has attained zero waste to landfill at its operations in The Netherlands.

One example of the way the company has achieved its goal is by switching to green gas at its facility in Scherpenzeel. The gas is created by anaerobic digestion of fish waste, which is filtered to natural gas and pumped into the grid.

The other main innovation implemented has been a water recirculation system through closed loop piping.

”In the past three years we have taken huge strides towards our Mission Zero goal,” said Rob Boogaard, CEO of Interface in Europe. 

”To put it in context, as per January 2014, we are operating our European factories with a 90% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to 1996 while the EU Commission has set an EU carbon reduction target of 40% by 2030.”
