McIntosh Donald environmental consultancy assistance
A typical abbatoir for which we have developed systems for monitoring and measuring to ensure costs are kept down and full legal compliance. The site has gone through considerable changes over the last 5 years and we have managed the decommissioning of refrigeration plant and the massive protein processing unit. Through best practise processes the site has reduced waste costs through improved segregation and changes to on site packing systems.
