Cutting Carbon in Jaguar's Engine Rooms

Jaguar and Land Rover are two of Britain's best-loved car brands. Tata Steel acquired the brands from Ford in 2008 and created a new independent subsidiary that has gone from strength to strength ever since.

This year sees a major new phase in the expansion of Jaguar Land Rover, as the company's $500 million engine plant at the i54 Technology Park in Wolverhampton opens its doors, creating 1,000 new jobs in the area.

Jaguar Land Rover is at the forefront of green initiatives in the motor industry - the firm has offset more than 5 million tonnes of CO2 emissions since 2008, reduced its emissions by 27,000 tonnes between 2010 and 2012, and reduced its overall environmental impact by 25%.

Recycling was naturally a key consideration for the new plant. Suppliers were invited to visit the firm's Gaydon headquarters and demonstrate their recycling containers on a dummy production line.

The firm chose Glasdon's Nexus® 26G and Nexus 13G Recycling Bins as the exclusive recycling containers on the site. Hundreds of units have been installed in anticipation of full production beginning, and the company's other locations have also begun to roll these bins out at their sites.
