Latest Investment Aims to Lower Carbon Emissions by 53 tonnes per year

Blackmore is nationally renowned for its stance on minimising its impact on the environment. Blackmore recently invested over £3million in 2 new state-of-the-art print presses, which significantly lower emissions and water usage.

Now, part-funded by Low Carbon Dorset (as part of the European Regional Development Fund), Blackmore has invested in a high efficiency air compressor project. Blackmore has upgraded its existing compressed air system, which currently consists of multiple fixed speed compressors, with a highly efficient modern screw compressor with variable speed drive plus receiver and oil & water filters. The electricity savings have been estimated to equate to 53 tonnes CO2e per year.

Andrew Robbins, Blackmore's Managing Director, added "Everything we do is underpinned by our ethos to limit any impact on the environment and our greener print comes as standard on all print projects. As well as investing in the latest efficient presses and technology (such as the new compressed air system), all our stock comes from FSC or PEFC approved sources and our inks are either vegetable-based or biodegradable. We also offer carbon-balanced print in partnership with the World Land Trust. All of this is backed up by being one of the first UK printers to be awarded with the ISO 14001 Environmental Standard."

"The compressed air system applies the best energy management practices whilst removing moisture, oil and contaminants from the compressed air. This means that the air quality is enhanced within our site, whilst providing carbon emission savings of up to 53 tonnes per year."
