Investing in the future of renewable energy

Porelle has invested in renewable energy to power our manufacturing processes and to reduce our carbon footprint:

  • 1.5 mW Wind turbine
  • 1.4 mW Solar photo voltaic array

All of the electricity used to manufacture Porelle membranes comes from renewable technologies. Excess electric production is exported to the national grid, providing a positive impact to the wider community and our carbon footprint.

Porelle has also invested in manufacturing processes to reduce our impact on the environment by:

  • Ensuring materials used on site are recovered and reused
  • Doubled the recycling of non hazardous materials in the last 5 years
  • Manufacturing membranes using recycled material
  • Oekotex compliance
