Sustainability Consulting

At NrG we approach sustainability as an ongoing goal with a holistic, site-wide implementation of efficiency and mitigating measures. We believe that substantial improvements to specifically water management and carbon emissions can reduce day to day costs as well as benefit the environment.

Sustainability management must reach the Plant, the Process and the People on a site. With engagement on all three of those levels we can offer expert consulting and solutions in specific areas of site sustainability.

Water Hygiene

A core aspect of water management in the Commercial and Industrial space is in the realm of hygiene.  Achieving site wide water hygiene standards is an enabler of effective water savings projects.  We provide consulting in both managing cleaning processes as well as avoiding contaminating water.

Efficiently implemented cleaning regimes, both Cleaning in Place (CIP) and Cleaning out of Place (COP), can result in more sustainable water usage, and better hygiene in the plant.

Treating incoming water for contaminants and microbes is another key area of water management, especially in consumer goods production such as the food and beverage industry.

Recycling and Waste Management

On the output side of processes comes waste and effluent stream management.  Managing waste can be a tedious process that becomes increasingly costly if environmental regulations are not met.  NrG can provide expertise towards optimizing systems for handling and/or treating waste that can be both cost effective and sustainable.

These technical solutions can reduce the volume and cost of effluent water discharge, and/or purification processes to enable water reuse and minimise water discharge.

Carbon Emissions

Recently, South Africa has ratified the Paris Agreement and has pledged to implement strict measures to reduce carbon emissions drastically be 2030. Implementing carbon tax is one of the means by which SA aims to reach this goal. NrG wants to help companies in the industrial space to reduce their and mitigate GHG emissions in an effort to reduce the carbon emissions in SA and the effect of carbon tax on these companies.
