Fine Grinding is located within the Peak District National Park. There are several
sites of special scientific interest located close to the works.
Two footpaths that ran through the plant have been re-directed, under the National
Park Authority's supervision, around the site perimeter in order to avoid works traffic.
This has made the footpaths more enjoyable to use.
Considerable investment has been made in dust collection equipment in recent years
in order to meet, and where possible surpass, stringent new environmental protection
legislation. Emissions have been reduced substantially in the past five years.
As much of the company's business is based on processing life expired materials Fine
Grinding have a particularly strong position from an envioronmental point of view.
Many tonnes of used or rejected refractory bricks pass through our works each year,
and after treatment these materials are suitable for the manufacture of new bricks.
Fine Grinding are aware of the significance this work has on the environment.
