JFC given green prize

IRISH manufacturing group, JFC Manufacturing, along with two other companies has secured a European Business Award for the Environment.

The Galway-based company won the product award for converting bottles into a raw material for manufacturing pipes, which are then used as part of a storm water attenuation system that minimises flooding.

Meanwhile Lagan Cement received the IBEC environmental excellence award for significantly reducing their carbon footprint by substituting a portion of its non-renewable fossil fuel with green energy derived from solid recovered fuel.
