 The Rubber Group Press Area
Rubber Group, located at 15 Centre Road, eliminated hazardous waste from the manufacturing process and reduced its energy consumption by 45 percent (or 49,200 kilowatts per hour per month) and its water consumption by 90 percent (or 313,366 gallons of water per quarter).
Some innovations the Rubber Group implemented were just common sense: the lights and the heat are turned off at night; in the summer, the windows are opened in the morning and the air-conditioner is not turned on until someone says that it's too hot; and each room has individual heat controls.
Rubber Group also invested in energy-efficient lights that use reflectors to make as much light as the old lights while consuming less power, and it purchased thermal blankets to insulate molding areas to minimize heat loss.
