proofing. Now, with the release of Newton’s first annual recycling report we can see just how much HDPE plastic was recycled in 2017, and how Newton saved enough energy to make 519,690 mugs of tea…


Why Recycle Waterproofing Membrane?


One of the primary forms of structural water- proofing, cavity drainage membranes are manufactured from HDPE and designed to last for the lifetime of a building. However


Anyone for Half a Million Mugs of Tea? L


aunched in 2017, the Newton Membrane Recycling Service is the first recycling scheme in UK water-


each year the waterproofing industry sends hundreds of tonnes of off-cuts to landfill, as there was previously no service available for collecting and recycling the material. With the environmental credentials of


many new projects coming under increased scrutiny by assessments such as BREEAM, the ability for any company to trace their waste is therefore a valuable asset when undergoing sustainability assessments.


How Does It Work?


Available through Newton’s Specialist Contractors, the service collects the waste membrane on delivery backloads from across the UK and processes it at Newton’s Kent headquarters. From Newton, it is recycled by a third-party and manufactured into new construction products, therefore achieving a fully ‘closed-loop’ process. Most important however, is that the


service is transparent and traceable, making it possible to see where the waste is generated and produce reports for participating compa- nies on how much they are recycling and how much energy they are saving.


De-bug timber with Safeguard


Safeguard Europe has product a superb guide on the problem of larval infestation of timber, how to accurately identify the cause and how to treat it. Safeguard’s Woodworm Identification and Treatment volume is packed with detailed colour photography on the likely species to be encounter in Britain – and through all their life stages, from larvae to adult. In addition to allowing the reader to identify


woodworm, the guide covers how to check whether a woodworm infestation is still active or has died out, and how to treat minor infestations of common species effectively, and for the long term.

The impressive construction of a £45 million all-through school on the Greenwich Peninsula in London is set to benefit from first-grade airtightness performance thanks to the installation of the Frametite air barrier system from the A. Proctor Group. Sub-contractor


Bellwood Interiors required a high-quality air tightness membrane and chose the Frametite System as an external air barrier and alter- native to a traditional standard breather membrane with EDPM for the steel detailing. The Frametite System comprises Frametite, a low- resistance vapour permeable air barrier for walls plus Wraptite Tape.

What Have Been The Results?


As a result of Newton’s efforts to ensure the sustainability of their operations, in 2017 a total of 3.255 tonnes of membrane was collected for recycling. There are also several other measurements that we can convert this into to make it a bit more quantifiable: • Newton have avoided the release of 3.74 tonnes of Carbon Dioxide equivalent (CO2e) into the atmosphere


• This is the equivalent of burning 1,702 litres (1.24 metric tonnes) of petrol


• These are both equal to generating 14,616 Kilowatt Hours (kWh) of energy


• Enough energy to make 519,690 cups of tea!


Finally, it is also hoped that this innovative


new service will motivate other construction suppliers to consider their own processes and how they too can improve their environ- mental credentials.
