Fife’s ScotAsh shortlisted for two top business awards
ScotAsh, which manufactures sustainable products from ash produced by Longannet Power Station, has been named a national champion in this year’s European Business Awards in recognition of its innovation, business excellence and sustainability. The company will now compete for Ruban d’Honneur status in the next round of the competition, with the winners due to be announced next April.
In addition, ScotAsh has been shortlisted for the Vision in Business for the Environment of Scotland (VIBES) Awards, to be announced on 26th November. These awards recognise Scottish firms that reduce their impact on the environment.
Dunfermline MSP Bill Walker said: “Congratulations to ScotAsh for these nominations and recognition, and I wish them success with both awards.
“Products manufactured from pulverised fuel ash have an important role to play in improving the environment. They offer sustainable alternatives to the likes of cement and grout.”
ScotAsh supplies hundreds of thousands of technologically advanced products annually to construction specialists at home and around the world.
Over the last 12 years, they have sold 7.5m tonnes of ash-based products, diverting around 7m tonnes of ash from landfill. Over the same period, by displacing conventional construction materials, their products have conserved 6.5m tonnes of natural aggregates and saved 550,000 tonnes of CO2 from cement manufacture and aggregate processing.
