College Wins Award for Sustainability


9th December 2013

Angus College’s record on sustainability has been recognised with a national prize. Estate’s manager, Steve Hanson and Angus Biofuel’s Managing Director, Bill Watson were on hand to receive the Sustainability Award at the College Development Network Annual Awards in Glasgow.

Over recent years the College has developed an impressive record on recycling and energy saving policies. But perhaps the biggest achievement has been the partnership with sustainable energy company, Angus Bio Fuels which has seen the College install two enormous biofuel boilers in its Arbroath Campus, develop the first biomass training facility in Scotland – the Biomass Academy - and launch new courses for those keen to train as biofuel engineers, or to be involved in the production of biomass fuels within what is a rapidly expanding industry.

Estates Manager, Steve Hanson says “We’re delighted our efforts and those of Angus Biofuels have been recognised. The boilers are doing a fabulous job of keeping the College warm whilst further reducing our carbon footprint and now that we’ve merged to form the D&A College, we can see even more opportunities for sustainability training and projects future ahead.”
