Somerset-based filter manufacturer raises awareness for Recycle Week

Monday 9th October, 2023

AN INDUSTRY leading UK air filter manufacturing business based in Somerset is raising awareness for Recycle Week this month by helping people understand the importance of using recyclable products

Jasun Envirocare in Bridgwater is supporting the nation’s annual waste management celebration, from October 16 to 22, by assisting firms using filtration systems to recognise what can and can’t be recycled.

Jason Day, LEV Division Manager at Jasun Envirocare, which has been in business for more than 50 years, says: “Recycle Week is seven days of the year where retailers, brands, waste management companies, trade associations, governments and the media come together to achieve one goal: to galvanise everyone into recycling more of the right things, more often.

“We’re keen to help spread that message and we’re happy to chat to any commercial air filter users, whether they are our customer or not, to give them free help and advice, during the week, on recycling air filters, where possible, and what products to use that can be recycled.

“For example, we’ve specifically created and recently launched our new SuperpleatXC Panel Filter, which is classified as suitable for Waste to Energy (WtE) and, providing it’s disposed of like this, zero goes to landfill.

“Our SuperpleatXC Panel Filter is unusual in that the entire filter in this case can go to WtE. Parts of other air filters are recyclable – metal frames for example, but it takes a bit of work.

“These filters also help increase efficiency, reduce energy consumption and offer greater performance levels, which is another big plus point when it comes to being planet positive.

“They’ve been designed by our specialist, inhouse R&D department here in Somerset where we’ve bespoke labs and we’re the only UK-based air filter manufacturer that has an ISO16890 test facility. We’re very proud of what our team of highly skilled clean air solution experts have achieved and are delighted to offer this product, with its great eco-credentials.

“We are also able to recycle the metal frames from other bag and panel filters, as part of the services we provide. We can either collect used filters and recycle the metal, or the customer can send them back to us for the service to be carried out.”

As one of the UK’s largest air filter manufacturers, Jasun Envirocare provides a complete range of quality, standard and bespoke, air filters and systems, and all its products are made in Britain.

These include air purifiers, air filters, panel filters, washables, kitchen canopy grease filters, and HEPA filters.

As well as being specialists in the field of air hygiene, Jasun Envirocare is also an expert in water hygiene – providing a range of treatment solutions and services for commercial systems and is committed to continuous environmental improvement.
