Preserving our precious resources
They say our planet has been around for over 4 billion years. To us, that just means we should try to protect it for 4 billion more.
Our strategy is simple – we look for efficient and renewable solutions with a lower carbon footprint. This helps us to reduce our impact on the globe.
At Mount Romance our Sandalwood oil is produced using renewable energy. We collect the waste wood products from nearby plantations to fuel our biomass boiler. This is computer controlled to maximize the use of the fuel and minimise the smoke generation, creating a clean burn.
Distillation also uses thousands of litres of water. That’s why we’ve introduced a water catchment and recycling facility at our Sandalwood Factory in Albany. By collecting some of the region’s high rainfall and recycling the water after distillation we’re saving 80% on our previous water usage. That amounts to millions of litres of water saved each year.
