Going Carbon Neutral

Danish emulsifier producer Palsgaard has made its Netherlands site fully carbon neutral with the recent installation of 840 solar panels. The Dutch factory is now running entirely on renewable energy, reducing its emissions as well as its reliance on external sources of electricity. Palsgaard has said if it continued to use fossil fuels the CO2 emissions might have reached 1.3 million kg per year. The company aims to be carbon neutral at all its sites. It first used heat recovery techniques, then converted from fossil fuel to biogas, and then used renewable sources of energy – solar and wind.
