Leading United Kingdom landfill service gains insight on data-driven gas detection to advance safety and productivity

Mar 19 2021

Blackline Safety Corp. has announced that Enovert has joined Blackline Collective. Enovert is one of the United Kingdom’s leading landfill and waste resource management companies. As the first organisation to officially join the Collective, Enovert shared insight on its data-driven approach to safety and preventing gas exposure among its workforce.

“We see data collection and analysis as the present and future of the industrial sector,” said Mark Silvester, CEO of Enovert. “If an organisation has the capability of tracking and using data to improve operations, enhance work practices and mitigate risks, employees are safer and our surrounding communities are more sustainable. Joining Blackline Collective enables us to share how we’ve implemented a data-centric approach to safety, which we hope will help others around the world operate even more safely and responsibly.”

Managing more than 2.3 million tonnes of waste each year and producing renewable energy from biogas, Enovert’s employees regularly extract landfill gas for energy generation. Since these gases are primarily comprised of methane, Enovert has invested heavily in gas detection solutions and data analytics to ensure worker safety. This strategy equips Enovert with real-time and historical data on employee whereabouts and gas hazard levels, enabling them to make fluid adjustments to operations that enhance workplace safety.

Additionally, Enovert’s data-centric approach to gas detection plays a significant role in sustainability and helping the UK meet its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. By using data proactively to track and increase its gas capture rate, Enovert regularly exceeds compliance standards and provides accurate reporting to its local environmental agency. These practices ensure the safe and secure disposal of waste and the generation of essential electricity to power 75,000 homes across the UK responsibly.
