A Significant development for BAS Castings Ltd

BAS Castings are pleased to announce that the company has recently completed a 2 year project to change the Environmental status of the business from a traditional SME foundry classed as a Part B processes to a more tightly monitored and controlled Part A2 process. This is a major development for our business. The change to our status is required to supports our current high customer demand and ambitious 5 year expansion programme.

BAS castings have obtained an Environmental Permit from Bolsover District Council under the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2010 to enable the company to produce 20 tonnes per day or more of finished castings. The previous (part B permit) was concerned only with emissions to air but the (A2) permit now in place requires an integrated management approach to all environmental impacts. This provides additional benefits to the environment, and all stakeholders.

To achieve this, the company has committed significant capital and personnel resource in order to carry out the detailed assessments of its emissions to air, land, and water and implement the measures necessary to minimise these to levels that are well within UK regulations. Regular assessments and measurements by independent organisations are made on an ongoing basis to ensure that this high standard of performance is maintained.

An Environmental Management System is in place to ensure that the measures are in place to meet current and future legislative requirements.
