Eldon James' Green Initiatives
Eldon James Corporation has launched their green initiatives as a green manufacturer of tubing and fittings. Through a major effort in recycling manufactured materials, environmentally safe plastics and new energy efficiencies at their new 75,000 square foot facility in Denver, Colorado, Eldon James looks to take the lead in the tubing and fittings manufacturing industry as a green company.
While Eldon James purchases thousands of pounds of raw material each year, they have intentionally built markets that can be supplied with internally recycled materials. 125,000 pounds of material is re-manufactured within their own facility. This material is ground and reprocessed into industrial and automotive parts that do not require first run material.
Environmentally safe plastics have continued to be a driving force for new innovation for the tubing extrusion and injection molded fittings. With several industries demanding alternatives as PVC Free tubing, Eldon James is leading the way with safe and effective alternatives like TPE tubing (thermoplastic elastomer). Specifically, the medical equipment industry and the beverage equipment industry have both recognized a need for tubing and fittings that to not have the harmful environmental and health effects that PVC does.
With these two major areas already in place for green manufacturing, the third area of their green initiative includes the energy efficiencies that are being built into their new headquarters and manufacturing facility in Denver, CO. Occupancy sensor controls for T5HO lighting in their warehouse and manufacturing, dc fan powered HEPA filters, all-electric servo controller molding machines and frequency drives on chiller loop and compressors are all part of the new construction plan.
