At Clenaware Systems, we recognise that in our day to day operations, we inevitably impact on the environment in several ways and are committed to reducing that impact through continual improvement in our environmental performance.
How our products are manufactured through to the final delivery to our customers matters to us. We focus on using our resources efficiently and manage our waste effectively, to impact on the environment as little as possible. At Clenaware Systems, its not just an environmental strategy, its good business.
Clenaware Systems is committed to reducing the impact that our machines and day to day running of the business has on the environment.
Employee awareness towards environmental issues is encouraged and we are committed to reviewing our policy regularly in line with business needs and regulatory requirements. We actively promote the reduce, reuse, recycle philosophy to minimise as best we can the impact that we have on the environment.
All of our manufacturing equipment, office equipment and company vehicles are subject to regular maintenance programmes in order to promote their energy efficiency and therefore keep their impact on the environment to a minimum.
We are registered with the Environment Agency and take great pride in our product design, which allows us to incorporate the environment at the initial design and build right through to the final production and shipping of all our products.
We actively promote the recycling of any waste products produced in both the manufacture of our products and the administration of delivering the products to our customers.
We promote recycling across the business and have a staff training program in place to raise awareness and to enlist their support in improving the recycling that we at Clenaware Systems do. We also encourage the adoption of similar principles by our suppliers.
We provide specific waste skips that are collected by specialist recycling companies to avoid waste going into landfill. All our metal and cardboard waste is sent for recycling on a regular basis.
Our premises are fully equipped with recycling bins for items such as paper and card, plastic, cans and glass. We actively encourage our staff and any visitors to our business to make the right choices when disposing of waste.
The WEEE (Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment) directive is an EU-wide legislation that obliges electronic and electrical product manufacturers to assume responsibility for their electrical waste. Any products that are covered by WEEE can be identified by the following symbol.
Our WEEE registration number is WEEE/DE2076RU
The crossed-out wheelie bin symbolises that WEEE is required and that any of our equipment is to be disposed of correctly to comply with regulation. The black line underneath the crossed-out wheelie bin states that EEE was manufactured and put on the market on or after 13th August 2005.
At Clenaware Systems we take our responsibilities under the WEEE directive very seriously. If you would like to discuss returning your old Clenaware Systems machine to us under WEEE then please call us on 01933 666244.
The chemicals sold by Clenaware Systems are specifically designed for use in commercial glasswashers and dishwashers. A list of safety data sheets can be provided on request.
Most recently, we have made the move to store our chemicals in smaller bottles also reducing the level of waste produced by our customers when disposing of the empty containers.
Whilst we do not manufacture chemicals ourselves, we continue to work with our suppliers to understand the impact of the REACH regulation (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) on our products and will always take action to ensure that any risks to the environment as a result of using chemicals are reviewed and passed on to our customers and distributors.
We transport our chemicals using specific carriers to reduce the impact on the environment should an incident occur during delivery to our customers.
The Clenaware Systems range of glasswashers and dishwashers are "Fresh Water Wash" machines, meaning the first wash is exactly the same as the last. The "Fresh Water Wash" system replaces the wash water every time and the rinse water is always fresh to ensure that the same consistent wash results are obtained.
The machines do not contain large wash tanks or rinse boilers that hold more water than is required for a single wash cycle. The Clenaware Systems glasswashers and dishwashers only fill with the water required for each wash cycle.
Our Research and Development team continually work to ensure that our machines use the minimum amount of water possible whilst still achieving a consistent "Fresh Water Wash" result.
Our glasswashers also feature a special Renovate cycle which can be run at any time without the need for emptying and re-filling the machine which reduces the amount of water used.
All Clenaware Systems glasswashers and dishwashers are WRAS (Water Regulations Advisory Scheme) approved to eliminate the risk of contamination of water supplies.
Clenaware Systems glasswashers and dishwashers can be wired as a Single Phase 13 Amp or 30 Amp machine.
Each machine is fitted with only the heaters required to operate at the relevant electrical level, reducing the amount of energy required to operate a wash or rinse cycle.
The machines can be connected to either a hot or cold water supply, with hot allowing for less heating in the machine during wash or rinse cycles.
The launch of our new model of the Sovereign glasswasher, incorporates a heat exchange system. This system reduces the heating power required in the machine which in turn lowers power consumption and operating costs.
Our Research and Development team continually work to ensure that our machines use the minimum amount of energy possible each time.
