100% of general waste from the business is now turned into biofuel, which goes on to provide fuel for heating and hot water in other industries. 
 
“A healthy and thriving planet is central to the Apeks, and our parent company Aqua Lung’s, business ethos,” commented Managing Director Landon Helsby. “In 2014 we installed solar panels on the factory roof which in 2016 generated 80022 KWh of electricity and we’re proud of our achievements in eliminating landfill waste and investing in a sustainable future.” 
 
Health and Safety Manager for Apeks, Andy Atkins, has been the brains behind the project. “We’ve worked with local company Frank Barnes to achieve this goal,” said Andy “but real credit must go to all of our staff at Apeks who have embraced the zero waste project and who have taken time and effort to ensure that we’re working in the best way possible as a business.
