Discover the livestock netting manufactured with sustainable wire
You can see the MRT products at: "Sommet de l'élevage"
Society is becoming increasingly aware of the need to curb climate change and combat pollution, and the agricultural and livestock sector is no stranger to this. Consequentially, forward-thinking companies are opting to introduce sustainable business models; with the manufacture of their products from recycled materials being a prime example of good practice.
One of these companies is Moreda Riviere Trefilerías (MRT), the leading manufacturer of enclosures in Spain. The wire rod that constitutes the raw material for its products is manufactured within the steel group to which it belongs, the CELSA Group™, from recycled ferrous materials (scrap).
In addition, CELSA Group™ has chosen to produce this steel using electric arc furnaces, a manufacturing process with minimal CO2 emissions compared to blast furnace manufacturing. Blast furnaces rely on supplies of coal and virgin iron ore, both of which come from mining operations whose impact on the environment is often disastrous (take a look at this report from Responsible Mining Foundation). By the way, CELSA Group™ CO2 emissions are already 36.8% lower than the average for the European steel sector.
However, to take this environmental approach even further and to ensure that the wire rod that MRT uses to manufacture its products is even more environmentally friendly, CELSA Group™ has committed to reduce CO2 emissions and becoming the first "Net Positive" circular industrial company by 2050.
Meantime, MRT continues to manufacture fencing with wire rod containing at least 85% recycled materials, and 94% of the waste inherent in its production is recovered and reused. This is the case, for example, with the different knotted mesh options it manufactures, for HJ MRT® hinged joint sheep fencing, and its 2 fixed knotted meshes, known as FK MRT® and XK MRT®.
Although some people today remain unconvinced of the importance of protecting our planet, this is rarely the case for farmers and livestock owners. On the other hand, some manufacturers such as CELSA Group™ and Moreda Riviere Trefilerías (MRT) have long since opted for an environmentally friendly manufacturing process.
So, why not take advantage of the "Sommet de l'Élevage", which takes place from 3 to 6 October in Cournon, to meet their team? On stand A32 in hall 1, MRT will be presenting its range of "green" agricultural fencing products.
