Monadnock uses renewable electricity for production

Monadnock Non-Wovens LLC (MNW), a manufacturer of meltblown synthetic media roll goods for a wide variety of technical applications, has announced that all of its products are now manufactured with renewable electricity. The company has also focused on waste and recycling realising a 66 per cent reduction in waste to landfill over the past two years.

Through a significant investment in green-e certified renewable wind-powered energy certificates (RECs), MNW has offset its entire electrical requirement while supporting new, additive wind-powered electricity generation. Using renewable source in manufacturing represents MNW's strong commitment to sustainability.  

 

"As Monadnock continues to grow and expand into new markets, we are proud that we can announce a great leap forward in our five-year plan to reduce environmental impacts and help our customers realise their complex sustainable purchasing objectives," said Keith Hayward, managing director of MNW.  

In 2016, MNW completed a facility-wide conversion to LED lighting with an estimated energy savings of 115,000 KWh of electricity per year. MNW harvests waste heat from its production completely eliminating the need for facility heating (except in periods of shutdown in the winter).  Additional process improvements and equipment upgrades have led to additional energy savings.
