Space Engineering Services understands that we all have a role to play in not just protecting our environment, but helping to restore our planets health. We are supporting this year’s World Environment Day by reinforcing key messages to our colleagues
Nature and the Environment
World Environment Day is celebrated annually to encourage worldwide awareness and action to protect our environment. This year it is being held on Saturday 5th June with a focus on ‘Ecosystem Restoration’
Healthy ecosystems clean our water, purify our air, maintain our soil, regulate the climate, recycle nutrients and provide us with food. They provide raw materials and resources for medicines and other purposes. They are at the foundation of all civilisation and sustain our economies.
People and the planet are only as healthy as the ecosystems that we all depend on, we can bring our degraded ecosystems back to life by planting trees, cleaning up riverbanks, or simply giving nature space to recover.
What small changes can we make to protect our oceans?
Making just a few small changes can have a big impact on the amount of plastic we use on a day-to-day basis.
R404a Refrigerant is one of the most widely used refrigerants in the commercial supermarket industry to include freezers, chillers, vending machines, and other cooling units which have low and medium temperature requirements.
However, although it has useful properties, R404a has a GWP (Global Warming Potential) Rating of 3,992, which means that for every 1kg of Co2 released into the atmosphere R404a releases 3,992kg which is the equivalent of:
That’s just for every 1KG released! The importance of early detection and repair of refrigeration systems through PPM schedules (Planned Preventative Maintenance) ensures that the refrigeration equipment is working efficiently resulting in prevention of refrigerant leaks, improved life cycle, lower energy consumption and reduced impact on the environment.
During the pandemic the need for personal protective equipment (PPE) has increased drastically with millions of face coverings being used and thrown away every single day. Most of these face coverings contain plastics or other derivatives of plastics which are harmful to our environment and cannot be recycled easily. This extensive usage of face coverings also generates tons of waste in a short span of time many of which of which end up in oceans, rivers and on the ground.
